In the kitchen, I have the usual

appliances and utensils. Just above

my sink, a large window opens to the

outdoors. Each day, my window filters

nature's bounty to me.

In winter, I watch sunrises and

sunets shiver in gray and ebony. Slate

skies drift snow gently upon the

evergreens. Around the bushes and

trees, foot prints of fox and coyote

emerge.

Light blue skies usher in

spring with white cloud pillows.

Tulips, daffodils, crocus burst

from beneath the emerald carpet.

Bluebirds and robins line their

nest with twigs and moss. Arias

of joyful adoration exhale from

mockingbirds, cardinals and wrens.

The heat of summer burns ruby

red sunrises and sunsets. Roses

and hibiscus dance toward the

flaming sun. Rabbits chew on

tasty morsels of clover. Mother

bear and cubs stealth by my patio.

Summer marches out the door

and into the patch-work of deep

blues, purples and crimson of

autumn sunrises and sunsets. God

fills His easel with brilliant

oranges, golden yellows, fiery

scarlet and burnt browns on the

mountains. Squirrels hide nuts

and turkeys peck at the last

remaining bugs and seeds.

The wind spins down the

mountainsides taking God's easel

and heads toward another winter.

In my kitchen, my window reminds

me of Psalm 118:24, "This is the

day which the Lord has made; let

us rejoice and be glad in it."

I would love to have the scenery out that kitchen window. Very nice job.

This is a lovely description of the passing of time. That is one thing that is difficult in the house I now live in. There is no window over the kitchen sink. I think doing the chores might be so much easier if I had the window to watch the world from.
