There's so much country in our county.
At one time, Deepstep was a buzzing little town.
There was even a school.
This was the country store.
Don't you just love the benches on the front porch?
I can just see men sitting here shooting the breeze
while waiting on the misses to grab some grub.
One time we were driving down a country road
when our car gave out of gas.
Daddy knew someone on a farm nearby who had a gas tank.
I suppose the tank was for supplying fuel for the farm equipment.
The man wouldn't let Daddy pay him.
I wonder why some memories stand out like this one?
Green is the tractor color of choice
in this neck of the woods.
In the town that I grew up in,
there was an International (Red) Tractor Co.
and a John Deere (Green) Tractor Co.
down the road.
argument discussion around here was
who made the best tractor.
There was country store in every town
with a Mom and Pop store on every corner.
When I see these little roads,
I think of the song, "Country Roads Take Me Home."
This is home to one of my friends.
Is this not beautiful?
So thankful that God's promises are true and sure.
Do you have country in your county?
Hope you enjoy your day of rest tomorrow,
