The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

spring. . .

The possibility of a Season might come to mind for many, 
especially after this unSeasonable Spring for 2013.

But for me, 
since 1967 during my first visit,
Bennett Spring State Park at Lebanon, Missouri
is forever etched into my heart, mind and soul.

     And he said unto them,
     Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place,
     and rest a while; for there were many coming and going,
     and they had no leisure so much as to eat.
                                                  Mark 6:31

So~o~o. . .
each Autumn "Mr. Ed" and I heed the Scriptures
and literally come apart and rest a while.
Over the past two decades, our desert place has been 
an Annual Trout Fishing Trip to Bennett Spring State Park.

This annual homeage we take On Crooked Creek
is the retreat that helps to bond us closer together 
as man and wife. . .
and draws us into a deeper relationship with our Lord.

Away from the coming and going of our everyday lives,
we are afforded the leisure time 
to listen and hear His direction for us.
The beauty of Bennett Spring State Park 
is certainly no desert place~quite the contrary.

What better place to inwardly 
and outwardly experience God's handiwork?

spring. . .

Until next time. . .

On Crooked Creek will be joining
