DAY OF REFLECTION
Awoke to the sound of the rain at Flint Road!
I saw the most wonderful sight here to-date:
A turkey gracefully working her way across the field;
Five deer (a buck, 2 doe, 2 fawn);
The fawn were playing in a pool of water,
Then something totally unexpected happened.
The deer circled the turkey and ran it out of the field.
The 2 fawn returned to their play and slowly they all disappeared into the woods.
Later, as the rain returned, they re-appeared grazing in the field together.
As soon as the rain stopped they were back into the woods.
Lord, thank you for these beautiful moments. Your creation here at Flint Road!
The birds – deer – turkey – rain and view.
OLD DUMAS ROAD
Old Dumas Road is the North Border of Farrbee.
This road was a main artery to town 100 years ago. A flood in the 1940’s washed out the bridge
and this part of the road has been dormant since.
We recently opened up the road to use as a second entrance. Some of the locals have shared
the history of this old road. There are little pieces of our past that are keys to our future;
we just have to slow down and observe.
One day recently I was taking a few quite moments on Old Dumas and coined these words:
Old Dumas Road
Abandoned and long forgotten
Only an aged few know your story
The flood of the 40’s knocked you out
So they say.
You’ve seen much
Many moved your artery to town
The Chaney’s and Smith’s to name a few.
Now you’re just an old logging road
Awoken for a brief moment
Now to rest again before another generation discovers you.
Old road sleep peacefully
I’ll be by on my morning walks
We’ll see this season thru together!
