  1. I moved here 46 years ago when it was rural and it became urban all around me – I feel like I’ll have to move just once more before I die!! It’s great having stores close by – but enough is enough!!

  2. I love a country setting because you can really see the majesty of God’s glory in the nighttime sky. So quiet, so amazing. So creative is our God!

  3. I think the natural setting is embedded into us just like you stated. I mean God did tell man:
    And God blessed them: and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. —Genesis 1:28 ASV
    He also stated:
    So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. —Isaiah 55:11
    Thus God still wants his plan to be fulfilled and we humans might have a natural gravitation to nature (except some people today who just absolutely hate the outdoors). Great post by the way👍

  4. I agree, Don. I think that’s why I like sitting on my deck so early in the morning (6-7am), before the noise and rush of the city begins. Easier to hear “that still small voice,” easier to hear His love song in the trill of the birds.

  5. “The air is pure…” Well, experience tells me that if you worked closely with pigs or sheep you might modify your perception of this idea somewhat! That is, however, a minor inconvenience when considering the fulfillment of working with animals in general.
