Wanderings : Cloverdale, Indiana

I was recently in Cloverdale, Indiana for a horse sale, and took off one evening to wander around. They boast a large collection of covered bridges - I could only find one, but it was in the same park as Indiana's largest waterfall. It was a really beautiful place and a sweet fall drive. I ate the yummiest apple of my life and picked up a pumpkin. DSC_4923.jpg

When things get too crazy, the first thing I forget about is the value of silence. To be still and listen. I go to bed watching some sort of movie, I eat and shower listening to the radio and I for certain am always singing at my computer when I sit in front of it. And when none of these things are happening, I'm on the phone with a dear friend. Now that things are slowing, I am trying to make it a point to slow down, take an extra walk, find a place to just sit still, alone and be silent. To fill myself back up. No ipod this week when I run either....let me tell you, that's been a challenge.

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven. A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to reap that which is planted. A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to to mourn, and a time to dance. A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing. A time to get and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. {Ecclesiastes 3:1}
