As the sun warms the earth (and it doesn't take long in these parts), I stroll around and check in on the flowers and plants, seeing what they’ve been up to during the night.
The psalmist David wrote, "The earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof." Perhaps that is why I feel closest to God whenever I'm out in nature. There is a sense of peace and harmony that can’t be matched indoors.
Until next time, sweet friends, may you find time for lingering on shady benches, or whatever brings you joy. As for me, I'm knee-deep in scrapbooking, trying to get into the current year. Slow and steady gets it done. At least, I hope so.
