"Shhh...I Can Hear the Country Calling" ~ A Painting a Day Hudson River School Sunset Landscapes by Connie Tom

This scene makes me think of the awakening of a brand new day. The country holds a very special place for me. I grew up in the country. I love the fresh country air, the simplicity and goodness of the land, the solitude and the wide open spaces. The flock of geese overhead represents a sense of freedom and ability to be and do what we are supposed to do and be. After all... God wouldn't have given birds the desire to fly south if He wasn't going to also give them the ability to do so. Enjoy!

"Thy Word is a Lamp unto my feet, and a Light unto my path." Psalms 119:105

What a beautiful sunrise, Connie. The morning mist that I so often see out here, oddly enough, in the country where I live. Just beautiful! Now I can picture sitting in a big old farmhouse kitchen with a cup of coffee and looking out big kitchen windows and just enjoying the new day waking.
