Last Sunday, we left in time to just "take in" some of the things God has to offer through nature and mankind. We travel through the rural community of East Limestone on our way to Sunday morning church services each week. I can't help but smile when I soak in the scenery and the sense of tranquility when passing through. There is an old iron bridge with wooden slats that we pass. It spans a small stream and is a reminder of yesteryear when the road traveled a different path. It is a short walk from Capshaw Road. Many times I have seen photographers using the bridge as a prop. I've often smiled when I saw a young couple or a senior couple who has taken time to enjoy the bridge as a place to hold hands. I would imagine that the old bridge has been the witness to many marriage proposals.I love the East Limestone scenery in the summer months, when the cotton fields are beginning to bloom to add spots of purple, white and red dots to the canvas of rich green leaves. The cotton rows are long and join the distant tree lines of green. Our eyes move upward to the point of where the Dresden sky takes command of the beauty. As we travel west, the big morning orange ball is over our shoulders to cast the highlights on God's magnificent painting. They are the Master's highlights that Thomas Kinkade sought. In the clearing ahead are large lush green pastures framed by what appears as miles of white fencing. All is beauty but is practical to hold the brown horses with manes of black that graze the green. Behind the horses are two large white barns capped with roofs of green. There is such a peace about this travel through East Limestone. I hear it. I see it. I feel it. I smile. I see God's smile.
