Rest for my Soul

Traveling home today, through the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains. I have found the recipe for pure delight- love of family, beautiful view, delicious bread and coffee for breakfast. Pure contentment comes when God is added to the mix.

Lucky me, I will be out as far as Lexington again in a few days. Matt just found out he made the finals of Appellate Moot Court, which is a big deal in law school. So I am scrambling to arrange rides for Asherel to her classes so that I can be here for Matt's moment in the sun (one of many, I am sure.) Fortunately, I have an interview I need to do for my book not far from my son's home, so the trip was already partially planned anyway...and it is a write-off!

There are not many mornings in life when it is easy to lay aside the troubles. And there are always troubles. But sitting in this hotel right now, on a balcony as high as the hawk riding on thermals, watching the clouds kiss the mountains good morning, all is right with the world. It is God's reprieve, granted me for a few moments before the earth starts spinning again.

Psalm 62:1,5 (NIV)
Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him. [5] Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.
