lunchtime around these parts

I work in the historic downtown area of Buford, Georgia, just about 40 minutes north of Atlanta. Our building was once a hotel back in 1982 (and, it has been rumored, a brothel) and there's no telling what kind of stories my office could tell (if only the walls could speak!). 

Here is a small town full of pretty houses, antique stores, railroad tracks that run through the center of town, and homegrown Southern food.

At lunchtime, I go outside to sit underneath trees that grow and stretch out like a mother's arms. There, I study the Word and learn about drawing near to the Lord. I rest quietly on my grandmother's quilt and take a break from the stress of picky clients, deadlines, and the ever-changing world of a creative agency.

This is what lunchtime, in recent days, has looked like for me.

And it is good. It is very good.

That sounds WAY nicer than my lunch breaks, which include heating up a frozen meal, sitting in my office with the door closed, and working on homework. Boo!! Your way is much better! :)
