“A Rural Motel”

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. Romans 1:18-20 (NIV).

The Holy message of these verses are readily apparent every time my family and I check into the Canaan Motel, in Canaan, Maine. It is a motel that is second only to one’s own home. The proprietors and staff are representative of the biblical admonition; to take care of guests and treat them like family, in the literal sense. The sauna and heated pool bear witness, that a visit to a major city is not necessary for the added luxuries of life.

The heavenly scenery of the area abounds and gives truth to the aforementioned words of Paul. Visitors feel the fresh crisp air on their tongue in the winter. A warm flow of air, without the city’s toxic fumes can be enjoyed in the summer months. Driving around the area and seeing the peaceful setting gets into the mind in a most positive manner. A desire to forsake your past and start life anew in this rural section of Maine, automatically enters the thought process.

From the front of the motel the visitor inhales God’s fresh Maine air. It is a luxury to many people’s lungs. As one peruses the area, with the Kennebec river not far away, our senses were overloaded with the immense beauty and solitude of the area. No traffic. Just friendly people all around.

A visit to the serene and practically unspoiled Lake George is truly enjoyable. Individuals have to force themselves to leave. Its waters seem to mesh with the beautiful clear sky and it is easy to lose oneself in praise of God for His creation.


Upon leaving the Canaan area I am blessed by having viewed God’s beauty, that He allotted to this part of our country. There is no natural calamity that will do harm to the beauty of this area of America; only man’s neglect of his stewardship over the earth can do that. My only regret is that I do not presently reside there.

Aaaah...definitely makes me want to go there.

Very evocative and descriptive. You probably don't need the last sentence; it's a bit of a let-down after you get your reader to imagine this little piece of heaven! You should write their brochure; you've done a wonderful job "selling" the place.
