“Soul” Service

Do you ever go someplace where there is no cell phone reception? 

Last weekend we decided to take a last minute mini vacation. After a quick Google search, I found a cabin to rent at a ranch, we packed our bags, and we were on our way. 

In two days, we visited three state parks, and I can’t even begin to tell you how beautiful the places were. 

It’s a bit ironic that the very thing that got us to our destination, was the one thing that was unavailable at our destination. 

No service. Cell phone service, that is. Believe it or not, it was quite freeing. And, the only instance that I longed for my phone was when we walked down a path, heard what sounded like a waterfall, rounded the corner and saw a miniature Colorado! I wanted to call mom right then! 

Seriously, how does Mother Nature replicate herself in the most unassuming places? I mean, from the parking lot, there’s not even an indication to the stunning-ness that lies down the trail. 

For days, I’ve been trying to get words around the things we saw and did. Words don’t seem to do justice to such beauty. The ones that come to mind are “ing” adjectives:

  • Healing
  • Relaxing
  • Calming
  • Refreshing
  • Mesmerizing
  • Transforming
  • Breathtaking
  • Soothing

What I learned about being there was, nature sort of wraps you up in all of those words at once. How cool is that? 

Nature has my vote! Forget no service! I’ll take “soul” service!
