I'm grateful for all things local--local shops that sell what I need for home, pet, and family. Local farmers that grow the most amazing hay and produce. Our local library that helps me borrow resources from near and far. Local people that are ready with a smile, a wave, and a helping hand-all at the drop of the hat (you just have to be careful not to leave your car unlocked or they'll fill it with zucchini).
We may live in the middle of the corn fields, but our Lord has graciously provided most of what we could need or want ready to hand.
I'm grateful that I only have to be a "like a merchant ship" occasionally.
