There are so many moments to behold-
and these are a few from my week that I thank God for...
For fluffy clouds filled with light....
and the way this sunset grew tree shadows
and lit up even the picnic table.
For my family and friends; good health,
and happiness that seems to grow big
on this small farm.
For my best friend and
how hard he works and loves us so well.
For the pretty jay feather I found mowing- and this little antique
blue bottle; gifted from a friend.
Sweet and simple delights.
...The road runner who hopped a customers flat bed
and just hung out and preened awhile.
The songs and tweets my ears get to hear while
working out back.
The many hummers and witnessing their mighty battles
to be boss of the feeder.
That I get to see an old friend later today...
and that her favorite cookies didn't burn.
For finding the fancy grasses I've been adoring
on the half off rack at Wallyworld.
And the fancy new plumes now cascading from the one that rooted
still in it's plastic pot.
For the rain we got again just this morning.
It's so lush and beautiful for this time of year and we're so grateful.
For all the butterflies slurping zinnias.
And these dishes in my sink right now.
For the piping hot water that comes right out of our tap, ...
and cold air blowing from our vents.
I am so very blessed.
For knocking lots of wasper nests down,
without any more stings.
And heavy sunflowers
chock-full of seed
For a garden that keep blooming
and blooming and blooming
The melons that play
hide and seek,
and how fat they are with all this rain.
.... for this place to just "be"
-- That I finished the wonderful study "Loving God with all your mind,"
and can now really jump into the next one: "Stronger"
.... For a piece of fabric
"shade cloth" to cool down beneath.
...for potting shed visitors that fly in,
and back out again....
a giant hopper who had a thing for olde jars
and even my sweet tea too.
for this lil fella ....
And this little friend who lives under the lilies and seems
so content to be himself:
For this dragonfly who followed me
and stayed awhile to chat.
....For time away over the weekend to explore our mountains,
and visit places we'd never been...
(The Olde Union School)
For loggin roads, and streams to cross,
and the many black eyed susies
that graced the creek beds.
For fresh air to breathe and and his hand to hold
while hiking side by side.
For more cool rocks to haul home... and how he.... never complains
and seems to just "get me." Ahhh sweet love.
I am so very blessed.
Thank you Lord for this wonderful life you've given me.
.... for all these things and so much more....
thank you for my every
Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.
