Anyways, last Saturday my friend Landon and I decided to do something adventurous and we ended up driving in the interstate and getting off at an exit labeled: “Godley, TX”
Why did we get off there? The name sounded cool.
It is a super small town, very similar to my hometown, and I loved every second of it. We ended up just driving down some back roads through the various farm land. We came up on this creek and a deer was literally swimming. We were in AWE. It was such a pretty day to explore like that! I now know why they call it Godley. You can’t help but feel at home in that little town. The nature was so fresh and clean feeling.
Landon also knew of this hole in the wall type restaurant with home cooked Southern food so we ended up driving there for dinner. This place was so southern they served sweet tea in a mason jar. Just let that sink in real quick. I had a chicken fried steak with homemade gravy the size of my face with corn and mashed potatoes. My kind of cooking. Wow. I so appreciated being able to get out of the city. Being from the country I have never really had that feeling, but man was I thankful for the opportunity.
Having moved to Fort Worth I quickly learned to be thankful for wide open spaces. It just feels like there is more room to grow and make mistakes in a place where all you see is farm land for miles and miles. It was the best adventure!! Again soon @landon?
I encourage you to take the time to free yourself a little. To me, there is just something so peaceful about looking off into the distance and seeing nothing but possibilities and opportunities. It really reminds you just how good our God is. He creates amazing things and I personally enjoy going out and experiencing them. Give it a try!
The LORD has done it this very day; let us rejoice today and be glad.
Psalm 118:24 NIV
