It's beautiful here in the most southwestern town of Utah Valley. We try to walk every morning and as we do we enjoy the incredibly beautiful and peaceful surroundings including birds chirping in the trees, 'church cows' mooing in the distance, rolling hills on several sides, blue skies, fresh air, crops being watered, and farmers out cutting their hay.
It's a beautiful life and it's a peaceful life. Our nearest neighbor is about 1/2 mile away so we are able to enjoy tranquility unlike in the city.
I've enjoyed it though I do miss neighbors and friends close by - which is what I've always known in the past. But, I'm not complaining. I get more time for personal study and reflection which has been a needful thing to me after many years of a stressful existence.
So, I invite you to come out to Elberta. Enjoy the surroundings and scenery of a beautiful world God created for us.
