"Thou wilt shew me the path of life;
in thy presence is fullness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures
for evermore" Psalm 16:11
Each morning I love to get up early and sit on the back patio and listen to the birds sing and enjoy a cup of tea and admire God's beauty as I approach the day. No matter how difficult my situation may be at the time, there is peace and joy knowing I have the presence of God in my life to direct me in the right direction when I get on the wrong path.
It has been raining about every day, some mornings I drive the 10 miles into town and walk around the pond at the park.
All around this park is a concert sidewalk, the path goes down into the woods behind it also. It's great to see the geese on the pond and sometimes children are there feeding them.
But this morning I chose to walk in my yard with Madi (chihuahua)
Look close and you can see the rain falling on the fence. I like to put buckets out to catch the rainwater, then water the potted plants. See the pot in the upper right corner....that's is where the new bird's nest is that I found last week. Now there are 3 small eggs in it.
The mama bird flew in it while I was sitting there, but when I got my camera and started to take a picture of her sitting on the eggs, she flew away. Sure hope I didn't scare her and cause her not to come back.
I wondered outside and came across this mushroom. It was so big. A little farther now the path was one that was shaped like a birdbath.
There is so much still to do in my 2 acre's , maybe I can talk my grandson to come back and help me finish, or at least do a little at a time. The rain is good but the grass (and weeds) grow so fast.
On the arbor there is a Lady Banks rose and I'd love to move it since it doesn't get enough sun. Maybe someone can advise me on doing that. It's been planted about 2 years. The day lilies are about to open, they should be pretty. The lantana around the plant stand is starting to bloom.
It's always nice to have tea and cookies at the end of each walk.
My teacup is "Crown Trent" fine bone China...from Staffordshire,England.
HAVE A BLESSED DAY
