One of the things I really love about living here is that sometimes, when it's very early in the morning and quiet, we can hear ships blowing their horns in the Houston Ship Channel. Having been a resident of Abilene, TX, for eight years, I never dreamed I could be lying in bed and hear a ship go by. And at our church, one way we get the kids calmed down if they're upset in the nursery is to take them over to the window and show them the ships. How cool is that?! In Abilene it was more like, "See the mesquite tree? Wow! God made that mesquite tree!" The kids always seemed rather unimpressed.
