Another Day in Paradise!

As I type this post, I'm looking out my bedroom/office window at a beautiful blue sky, bright sunshine, lush green trees, and my window box with pink Impatiens growing in it. A truly lovely view! As I was silently saying a prayer of thanks earlier this morning for this gorgeous day and my very nice view, it suddenly occurred to me that I have my "very own paradise" here next to my computer. Now that may sound silly to some folks--as many people would describe "paradise" as somewhere exotic or tropical. Sure, those places are great and can be fun to visit. But for me (okay, I'll admit I'm somewhat of a homebody, haha) being able to gaze out my window and behold the Lord's handiwork in my own yard is wonderful. Yes, a kind of paradise for me. So today I'm thanking the Lord for what some folks would call "simple pleasures": the gift of eyesight, a nice window with a lovely view, and my cats sitting close by as I type. MY kind of paradise! ~ ~ The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth His handiwork. Psalm 19:1

Hi Patty Jo,

You do have a very lovely view. And you are right, being thankful is such a way to give your day a boost.

I like your blog.

Just stopped by to see if you wanted to give my blog another go.

It's way less volatile now.

Unfortunately, they passed the law we were so hoping they wouldn't.
It appears that teachers (or parents)no longer have the right to say that homosexuality is wrong - it could be construed to be bullying.

Onward ho, we're still on the winning side.


Enjoy your view, especially now that the days are longer. :)
