My favorite spot in our Minot AFB home is right here. You can’t tell but this is our living room and I’m laying on the couch reading a book. The living room itself isn’t my favorite spot as it seems to always be busy and almost always messy and loud. But seeing this view when all else is quiet and to feel the cool summer breeze, hear the birds chirping, and that beautiful sky! This, this is Peace, this is pure Joy, this is what I think God intended for us to experience in our homes.
In the summers this view is either completely clear of clouds and just the perfect blue or it has amazing cloud formations some of which also come with wonderful lightning shows. In fall the breeze is much cooler but just as peaceful. Seeing the leaves float past the window and hearing them crunch under the feet of families passing by is one experience I will never forget. Then comes winter with its white snow falling. Sometimes the snow falls peacefully and if you watch closely you will find a few flakes on the window to examine. But other times it falls with such fierceness you just watch in amazement. No, the windows are not open during winter but that’s fine because at that point you love feeling all warm and cozy in your home. Some days are dark and cloudy but from this spot it still looks peaceful. Then comes the spring; the sun that melts the snow feels delightful shining in, and the fresh air is crisp but much needed in the home that has been locked up all winter. The rains that falls brings a renewed hope; winter has ended and things are being made new.
