Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson returned to Instagram on Thursday, August 13 to share four snapshots taken over the past week. The 23-year-old spent time away from social media while undergoing an Internet detox. She spent the time outside, enjoying nature with family and friends.
The first photo was a group picture featuring a few famous faces including Willie Robertson, Will Robertson Jr., Rebecca Robertson, and several other familiar figures from Duck Dynasty. Sadie stood in the center of the group interlocking arms with her husband Christian Huff. The incredible, picturesque background included tall trees, a deep blue body of water and enormous mountains.
Other photos included in the post depicted Sadie and her husband on a scenic bike ride together on a trail that stretched through the mountains. She was dressed casually for the occasion in a blue tie-dye T-shirt and black biker shorts. She accessorized with a few bracelets on one wrist and shielded her eyes with a pair of sunglasses. She finished off the look with a pair of sneakers.

What a week. A week of rest and recharge in a place of pure beauty. Every time I’m around the mountains I’ve felt the same whisper reminder from the Lord that I first felt when skiing. “You can be going at a fast pace, but still have peace when your gaze is fixed on me.” As we were doing a 16 mile bike ride and going at a fast pace I was so in awe of the creation around me that I didn’t even think about the pace or the pain. I just had an immensely joyful peace. Yes, life is crazy right now. Yes, things are bad right now. I’m not saying ignore those things, but I have learned from the word of God that a fixed gaze can and will carry you a long way. We are in desperate need of repositioning our eyes and our hearts towards Him as individuals, a nation, and a world. I needed to get off my phone this week. Maybe you do too! So thankful for my family and this time we shared together ❤️
The final photo in the set featured the group walking together through the woods with what appeared to be provisions for a picnic.
In the caption of the post, Sadie discussed how valuable the time away from technology was and how much she learned from the hiatus. She wrote about going on a long bike ride and having the opportunity to take in the beauty of nature, which reminded her of God’s presence. She noted that the week had given her a great sense of peace as well as the opportunity to come back recharged and refreshed.
Sadie concluded her caption with a note of encouragement for her fans. She acknowledged that times are certainly difficult and different right now, and wrote that it’s important to keep the faith and remain positive.
The post got over 89,000 likes only a few hours after it was shared online. Her fans took to the comments section to thank her for the uplifting message.
“I have no other words than THANK YOU!!! This is exactly what I needed to hear,” wrote one person.
“Love this and so true!” commented a second person.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, Sadie announced her social media hiatus on Instagram last week. She noted that it’s important to take the time to simply be still and soak up the moment so special memories don’t pass by unnoticed.
