Trees and Green Again

The bats were flying last evening as Chris and I sat out on in our outdoor living room to enjoy one of the first, nice evenings of Spring.

The trees have filled in the voids nicely and we again have our our own private piece of the world.

We reflected upon the events of the past couple of days and counted the blessings that we have been given for no good reason other than God loves us. I reflected upon the message in church on Sunday which reinforced the concept that God owns everything and gives me the use some things for my enjoyment and his pleasure.

What a perspective changer.

I enjoy the backyard that he has seen fit to surround with a leafy canopy of green.

I leaned forward to smell the honey locust blossoms on the breeze.

And smiled remembering the gardenias I found in Disney just over a week ago.

A world to enjoy, if only I would slow down.
