I am going to forget my list of Things to do today and just grab a cup of Earl Grey tea, a couple of those chocolate chip cookies and head for the patio.
The daffodils are just opening their blooms for the day, just as I reach my favorite wicker chair. It seems sad they always close up at night but I suppose theyre like me and need to rest before starting a new day.
The rose bushes are just beginning the open their buds enough to tell what color they are. Some years they seem to be just a little different color than the year before.
It is so amazing how beautiful God recreates them each year for our pleasure. It reminds me of the verse in Song of Solomon. Solomon 2:12: The flowers appear on the earth; The time of singing has come, And the voice of the turtledove Is heard in our land.
As I sit here the beauty reaches out to my soul and makes me want to just sing out a new song to my Lord.
The sun is rising higher now and it feels as though it will soon be too warm to stay out here with no shade.
My tea has cooled enough to drink and I just finished the second cookie. I really must get on with all those chores on my list.
Thank you Jesus , for giving me this quiet time with you at the beginning of this beautiful spring day!
