a simply lovely life
Hello, my friends. I hope and pray that you are having a good day so far and that you sense that God is near to you, as He truly is. He loves His children so very much and is delighted with the ins and outs of what makes each one of us uniquely His creation. He knows every detail and desire of our heart. It is amazing to me that we can go to our Father with anything, any struggle, any longing, and He will listen and answer in the very best way that we need. I can trust Him with my life, and the lives of all my loved ones. There is so much security and contentment in His care.
I was outside this morning for a little while with Seth and Sarah. I took a blanket and my Bible study lessons out with me and watched the children play as I made a few phone calls. I sat under a tree that was nothing but red leaves. The sky is clear and blue today, and the sun was shining brilliantly through those leaves, making them looking like little stained glass windows from nature. We didn’t last long outside. Seth and Sarah were on the see-saw and Seth got off his end, causing Sarah to slam down on the ground. She was very upset, and wet, too, from playing in the pond, so we went back inside. I dried her off and gave her and Seth each a plate with grapes and graham crackers. I turned on one of their little shows and took a few minutes to myself. I went outside with my camera and back down to that beautiful red tree………
I thank you God
for this amazing day,
for the leaping greenly spirits of the trees,
and for the blue dream of sky
and for everything that is natural,
which is infinite,
which is yes.
And then, down to a yellow one by the pond.
I do so treasure the
freedom of being me,
and that it’s okay.
Jewels, from eyes of wonder
For thou, O Lord, art a God of compassion,
and gracious, long-suffering,
and plenteous in mercy and truth.
I picked a few tiny branches and a couple of red zinnias from the garden.
I used a scarlet fiesta tumbler as a vase.
The kitchen windowsill.
Our little orange cat named Sherlock was cozy on the back of the couch on the quilt I made.
I love having cats around, they are such dear things.
Have a wonderful day, my friends!
You are loved.
