Over the last several weeks I’ve been wanting to take a short road trip with our daughter Leah just to get away somewhere new. Yesterday we got in the car with no particular destination in mind just for fun. The rural, scenic drive, with K-LOVE playing in the background, was relaxing. We winded up in Nevada, MO – nowhere special, but just someplace different. We also stopped by Dairy Queen for an ice cream treat. 🙂
While there, we didn’t see anything earth shattering. But below are a few short videos of some interesting-looking buildings there. On the side of one of the buildings was a painting depicting Order No. 11. (If you aren’t familiar with this horrible tragedy in Kansas and Missouri during the American Civil War, click here to learn more. Although we didn’t go in, the town also has the Bushwhacker Museum and the old jail, one of the few buildings not burned by fire when the town was burned in 1863 by federal militia. Tours of the museum and the jail are available.)
What about you? Do you need a little time away today? How about a get-away with God, just spending a few minutes with Him to be refilled and refreshed?
Vlog of Nevada, MO – see the little VW Beetle police car at the end? How cute!
