Excerpts from the no-longer-existent Whitsend.org feature called The Odyssey Times.
Ah, summer in Odyssey. What a beautiful time. Bright, sunny days, gorgeous clouds at sunset, and warm sunning evenings. We live in a beautiful part of the countryso beautiful, in fact, that we often forget to notice it.
Getting caught in the daily grind is something of which I have often been guilty. I get so busy with work that I ignore all the blessings in my life. I recently spent several months away from Odyssey and returned have an incredible realization-this place is really and truly my favorite place on earth. I think that God often uses our time away from what we know to show us how wonderful our home really can be.
It’s the fulfillment of the old adage: “You never know how much you’ll miss something until you lose it.” How true. And what good counsel to appreciate what we have while we have it.
