the Hills in Autumn


.
Eddy Arnold said it nicely in his song, God Walks These Hills, “We all have treasures we call our own. Mine are these hills I call my home.” “What a comfort to know I'm never alone for God walks these hills with me. (Every day when the sun goes down I thank God for the love I've found). For the contentment each day I see in these hills God walks with me, Yes he walks these hills...”

After my early years of navigating foothills I was appalled when the man that was about to ask me to marry him presented me with a map of the Northern Ohio area where he was from. All the roads were laid out in precise, orderly lines. Straight. My first thought was that I would die of gloom if I had to live where there were no bends in the road. So when Jim asked me to marry him I gave him the condition that he must promise not to try to make a flatlander out of me. I think I am good now that he is well rooted in these hills.

  1. Hi Trendle,
    Thank you so much for your emails. You really blessed my heart this morning. So glad I was the next blog on blogger;)

    I love living in Minnesota because it does have curves and hills and such. It's really pretty...beats the flat Illinois prairieland I grew up in. Have a great day.

  2. Bless you Farmgirl. You probably wondered why I sent you so many e-mails! There was a glitch in my e-mail and a cache of outgoing mail that I didn't know was held up was all sent, like two months late!

    Yeah I love them hills.
