Sunshine Shining

 

Oh what a beautiful day!!!  The sun is shining, the frigid temps have blown on to another quarter (at least for now), blue skies are beckoning me to gaze upon them and I can almost taste spring!

Last fall I almost cut down these hydrangeas. I usually get trim happy and whack every thing down.  But, I decided to leave this one bush and I’m glad I did. It makes for some pretty pictures.

And I even like this picture of snow covered logs even though it reminds me we have a lot more winter left!

I’m so thankful for these big logs! They will keep us warm in the cold days to come and give me lots of hot water for all our needs.

This morning, before I woke for the day, I had a dream. The details aren’t important but I do believe it was from God. In this dream I was reminded that all I have are blessings.  Yesterday, I was taking some of those gifts from God for granted.  I had a couple hours which I allowed to be plagued by a nasty attitude.  Oh, how easy I forget God’s love and his precious gifts.

Today I am remembering and hiding in my heart all His goodness.

“I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever. For great is your love toward me;…”  Psalm 86:12-13a

 

My most recent article is posted AT THE WELL today. I would love for you to read it!

  1. It's just kinda hard to have a nasty attitude when you remember the goodness God has in your heart.

    You have a good heart sweetie!

  3. I'm thankful for Spring also. I love the new buds on trees, the flowers beginning to show; it also means that clean up and maintenance of the yards is soon to begin. Oh well
