I’ve wandered near and far
in search of you
looked high and low
for a perfect view
when all the while
all I had to do
When my husband has the whole weekend off, I love for us to do things together. He is a meticulous planner, and I am a fly-by-the seat of my pants girl. It works out pretty well for both of us! A little give-and-take goes a long way, and compromise is always a winner for both of us.
So the other night, I randomly suggested we go to the lake together to watch the sunset. Why have we never thought to do this in our 14 years of living in this neighborhood?!
We journeyed the 5 minutes down the street to the marina, parked the car, and found a resting spot against the guard rail. The sky was absolutely gorgeous. Just stunning.
We could see Carter’s Mountain off in the distance from the lake. And there were pontoon boats tarrying near the marina, taking in the spectacular view.
Sometimes I think about how much time I waste looking for something better- like looking for a better sunset view….
when we had a perfectly fine view right here all along!
He put your feet on a wonderful road
that took you straight to a good place to live- Psalm 107:7
You will show me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
