It was only an hour or so before dark and I decided to sit in my backyard for awhile.
Checking an outdoor chair to make sure I would not be sitting on a spider’s new home, I settled in to enjoy the cool air and the pleasant surroundings.
Those included the orange hues of blooming Lantana bushes, an ever changing sky with feathery clouds and the sight of our son’s cat racing from place to place, chasing insects or maybe even a lizard or two.
My husband decided to come outside and play the guitar.
I watched an airplane go by, tiny in my view, lit up by the sun’s rays.
Ants scurried around a hill not far from my chair, busy at work before nightfall.
I am grateful for all of those blessings.
The peaceful outdoor setting of my own home.
Even ants and lizards.
The part of me that knows that God is there all the time blends with His blessings to bring about an inner joy in my heart.
The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders; where morning dawns, where evening fades, you call forth songs of joy.
