Today, while Thing 1 and Thing 2 were at band practice, I decided to walk around the neighborhood.
The neighborhood in which band practice is located is old. Old brick homes. Tiny by today's standard, but overly welcoming. Porch swings, comfy chairs, and potted plants abound.
I started walking just for something to do. Tried to quiet my mind. Open my eyes. And I found that just 4 blocks from the hustle and bustle of the city , was a haven of peace.
What I found made me smile. I didn't know I needed a break. A second wind.
But God did.
And He abundantly provided.
When I least expected it.
