There are so many of you that follow my morning updates and the descriptions I post of Furnace Hills. My dentist, Dr. Andy Thompson, had an experience in the Furnace Hills this past week I thought was worth posting. I’m sure for those of you that love Furnace Hills as much I do will be encouraged by his words.
As I was driving along route 31 the other day, I noticed a sudden change in the quality of the air I was breathing. Curious as to what was happening, I got out of my car. It felt like I was walking in a dream, only this was more real than anything i had ever experienced. The sunlight took on an almost iridescent quality as I looked around me. Suddenly, I stopped in my track and gazed upwards at the most magnificent sight. Rugged, snow-capped mountains stood before me in majestic silence. A bald eagle slowly floated by. A rainbow burst into color just over the peak.
All at once, a lightness of my soul made me giddy with wonder. I realized that I had arrived – I had found it. After years of hearing tales of this wondrous place, I was finally standing in…..The Hills of Furnace…..known today simply as Furnace Hills. “So this is what Dave has been proudly proclaiming all along!!!”, I thought to myself. I was sorry to ever have laughed to myself at his daily updates of the legendary hills, which I had never beheld.
So the moral of the story is this: Don’t judge a hill until you have seen it face to face.
So let me know what you think. I appreciate Dr. Thompson’s words on the glories of the Furnace Hills.
Okay, so this is a tongue in cheek post, but I do love the Furnace Hills. It’s a GREAT place to live. Tune in later this week for more serious posts.
