Why the Ranch Recharges Me

We went down to the ranch last weekend.  It always recharges me.  Here’s why:

  • The big oaks still stand where they have always stood.
  • Nothing is prettier than the sunset over the Estate Grove unless is the sunrise over the Old Grove.
  • Guava Jelly.
  • Finding treasures like my old tin can for marbles.
  • Fat cows and fat calves.
  • Quiet.
  • Listening to old stories about my Daddy.
  • Seeing turkeys at the edge of Monkey Island.
  • Sleeping in the same room I slept in as child – only now, the bed has a King size mattress.
  • Hearing the call of the Sand Hill Crane.

God gives all of us a re-charge place.  Where’s yours?  How long since you’ve been?
