The Swing

The Swing

How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!

Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
River and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside--

Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown--
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down!
Robert Louis Stevenson

Ever since I was a baby I have loved to swing!  Back then I swang right to sleep, and even though I don't do that any more, it's not often that a day goes by when I don't swing!
Our set is nicely positioned in our backyard so that while swinging I can look out over our ten acre horse pasture!  It is a perfect place to still enjoy the outdoors while keeping those misquitoes off and look out over the field, pray, sing praises to our Lord, think, or even read.  It is a perfect spot during sunset, but during the quietness even the friendly squeak of the swing seems to loud and should be hushed in the splendor of God's creation.

Oh, that's beautiful Amber. Little did I know nearly 18 years ago that a swing would remain such a part of you. ♥ We do have the perfect swinging spot, don't we? I hope you never lose that love.
