Today felt like spring. It was warm and the sun was shining. The trees are budding out although it is still too early for leaves. And the days are getting so long. Almost 9 now and the sky is light still. Golfing has begun so in the house the TV is silent. This is my favorite time of year. The mosquitos are just beginning to show themselves so it is nice to sit outside almost bug free.
I went for a walk along the river tonight and then just sat for awhile on the riverbank. Just watching the water; listening to the geese; watching the sunset and the three brilliant white jet streams streaking across the pink orange of the sky.
I’m glad nature is so beautiful. It helps me hold on to the fact that there is more order and normalcy in my world than I think some days. Maybe not in the little world of me but out in God’s big universe. Some days life seems pretty confusing for me and my own reactions seem off kilter. I react in ways I least want to. There seem to be too many days when it seems like God has so much work to do on changing me to any sort of likeness of himself.
It’s a good thing this relationship with him doesn’t depend on my efforts.
