~ripening tomatoes, red on the vine
~just enough clouds to reflect the rising sun
~our very own cricket in the flowers on the patio
~anticipation of good things, just over the horizon
~sunlight in patches on the prairie
~God’s hand directing our work
~freedom, and the men and women who protect it
~ a son on his way to do the work God called him to
~a Father’s gift–grocery store flowers, warm reds, reduced and in my basket
~a patio to sit on
~God’s promise of protection and long life–Psalm 91
~ice cream, outdoors
~morning, fresh–a new day, a new week, a new season
~strength to accomplish His purpose
~a faithful washing machine, turning out clean laundry
~a turning of the tap–and clean, fresh water in my sink, in my shower!
~a new set of pens in five different colors with ink to match!
~God’s resilient strength placed in our hearts, ready in all seasons of life
~His Word, meat to chew, sustenance that carries us into the new day
Praise be to the LORD,
for he has heard my cry for mercy.
The LORD is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusts in him, and I am helped.
My heart leaps for joy
and I will give thanks to him in song.
The LORD is the strength of his people,
a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.
Save your people and bless your inheritance;
be their shepherd and carry them forever.
Psalm 28: 6-9 NIV
May God’s rich heritage be known by you today, with ever-deepening understanding, in ever-widening circles of joy.
