Lord, I truly enjoy being up before the sun — and this light pattery rain makes it even better! :D Thank you for the joy in my heart, the lightness and peace I have once again! Thank you for my Mate and the good times we have here in our tiny camper. Thank you even for the tiny arguments and all-out fights we have, each one serving as fodder for getting to know each other better, along with our boundaries and sensitivities, so we can grow just that much closer. :D Thank you for the delightful outdoor noises, little crickets and raindrop sounds coming in through my open window, with the breeze. Thank you for the stocked pantry and frigerators we have, and thank you for the ability to make my SOUP today — WOOT! I do love a good soup — and it will be perfect on this wet and cooler day. I can’t believe it is going down into the 30’s overnight for the next few nights!! I ADORE this time of year in Texas — so very much VARIETY!! And so much GREEN, before the Texas sun bakes most everything to a monotonous tan. LOL — THANK YOU for giving me HOPE — even with this COVID mess — that one day I MIGHT be able to purchase a mixed use building up in Western Michigan to serve as my summer home. I really badly miss the wetlands and riverine forests up there, Lord. You KNOW how my heart longs to return to the natural areas that I call HOME! Until then, I will just keep on appreciating the nature here in Texas — including all the awesome exposed ROCK on the ground that is excellent to use for honing my body’s balance! :D
Thank you also, Lord, for the peaceful art play time I got yesterday, enjoying a beautiful Sabbath rest. It was fun just doodling on the little kingfisher, freestyle.
