Singing out with their banjo-like quality, the green frogs of Pipe Lake accompanied our meandering pontoon ride through cattails and lily pads. Daily life had been deliciously interrupted with the sweet rhythms of a 36 hour get-away. Get away with Me.
The rhythm of a lazy breakfast…take a real rest...punctuated with good conversation…you’ll recover your life. The cadence of simple chats mixed with long talks. Come to Me.
Opening Scripture. Watch how I do it. Questioning. Sharing. Praying. Walk with me and work with me.
Savoring the precious pattern of friendship. Earthly and heavenly. Forgiveness and reconciliation. To understand and be understood. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.
Measured breezes slowly pushed our pontoon across the glassy lake. Occasional raindrops broke the afternoon sunshine. Clouds, white and gray, nudged across the sky. A time of respite. Of thought. Of conversation. Of rhythm that brings life. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.
