Easter Weekend

Today I gave thanks.
Thanks for eyes to see,
Ears to hear,
Legs to carry me,
Hands to create.
And the gift to appreciate it all.

I gave thanks for the miracle of life.

Thanks for the power in a seed.
Power in soil, sun and water.

I gave thanks that I can find beauty in almost anything.

 Yes, today I gave thanks.
 That God put me in this green area, at this time, in this place.

Thanks to witness the fragile beauty of nature.

Thanks to see the colors, the variety, the individuality.
I sat looking at nature and all these thoughts came up and I directed them toward the heavens, with gratitude.

So, while a representative of this little creature can steal the show today, be thankful for what you have, who you are, and life.  

It's a notable time for gratitude 
on Whippoorwill Road.
Happy Easter,

    1. Thanks. I'll check again into the verification (sigh). Don't know why it popped up again. I hope you're having a great week.

  2. You sure do have some nice landscaping! It is also nice to see all the green grass and stuff growing!

    1. Thank you. I have lots of work to do as we get some ferocious looking weeds here. Is it getting greener in your neck of the woods?
