But let's take a break from the gloom and doom and the serious stuff because it's Saturday. I'm going to take my wife out for a big Saturday breakfast, do a little shopping in town, and then come back and enjoy the beautiful nature that surrounds me. I might putter in the yard a bit, take a hike in the woods if it's not too hot, and play with the dogs. Then, of course, the Gator game against Kentucky will come on later and that is always worth my attention. It's kind of interesting, living in the rural land not too far from Gatorland, I sometimes think I can hear the roar of the crowd from here. So good luck, Gators, play clean but hard and bring us another win. Hopefully Will Muschamp is finally getting his coaching style together.
And then the evening is free for whatever we might want to do. It's kind of nice to have one evening during the week when you don't have to prepare for tomorrow so much. My preparations for Sunday on Saturday usually consist of finalizing my Sunday school lesson and praying that I meet His will with what I am about to teach. Otherwise, lots of times we just enjoying sitting out under the stars and enjoying the sounds of the Florida swamp in the distance. We enjoy the hoot owls, a few coyotes howls and even the occasional panther cry. Oh, I've had my fill of wild Saturday nights in years past and the memories are great but I like things a little more peaceful now. That's why I love the back to nature which I call home.
So whatever you plan to do, enjoy, relax and unwind. Saturday is a great day for that. I think it is clearly indicative of how the Lord clearly knew what He was doing when He created the seven day cycle to life. Have fun and God bless.
