The Road Today

... was met with peace and rest. Not one minute in the garden. Two hours on the sofa with a soft blanket covering me. With the gas/wood stove keeping me cozy a nap was in order. It is good to rest once in a while to restore the mind and body. The weather outside was on again off again. Warm sunshine one minute ... and rain, hail, and wind the next. I feared for my tomato plants in the pounding hail. But, after inspection, they seem to have fared for the better. This weekend will be busy enough with planting the rest of the garden. For now, I shall enjoy the view from my window. When one works too much outside, you tend not to notice the landscape view from the inside. It is a grand view today. Green spring growth as luscious as the Emerald Isle. Blue skies dappled with swirling white clouds. Birds flitting here and there enjoying the seeds placed in the feeders. Humming birds have returned and enjoy drinking the nectar we've provided. The hammock sways empty today with a stiff breeze pushing through the pines. In abundance, God has given us provision.

What a lovely post of peace and contentment. I am sure you enjoyed your time of rest and looking at the view from the window.

Praise God for simple abundance.
