Time is different up here.  Schedules don’t exist like they once did.

Of course we still need to get up and eat and work.  But it’s different somehow.

We are more bound by Time in a greater sense.  Time we can’t control.

We may make plans, but when three moose are right outside our door munching on our quakies, our plans wait.

I find waiting easier here.

It’s easier to see that we control nothing (nothing except how we choose to wait).  Waiting on nature’s time makes it easier to wait on the Lord’s time.

Nature’s time is so out of our control, yet it feels so completely right.

I feel slower, quieter, and more at rest.

I feel a part of a larger plan, instead of feeling so often that I, myself, am a major plan.

    I love the words you chose to end your blog entry with: “I feel a part of a larger plan, instead of feeling so often that I, myself, am a major plan. ”

    So very often, it seems like we get so involved in the goings on in our little “teapots” that we forget – there’s a party going on, and we’re just one little part of it!

    Sure love you guys,

    Time is different in the woods because we are more able to take the time to listen and tune in to God’s time. It takes us away from the rat race of city life and helps us to refocus. So glad your beautiful family is enjoying your new paradise!

    “Schedules don’t exist like they once did.”…. ummm, could I come join you? Like seriously, though – this sounds like heaven and the ability to BREATHE without the weight of the world crushing your mind and chest and soul inward.

  4. One of my most favorite quotes is Eckhart Tolle – “Eternity is the absence of time.” Makes me feel calm. I think I need a vacation up there… :)
