Thank the Lord for the serenity of home and little delights like finding this in my mailbox!
Gretchen posted a beautiful poem about grass, in honor of myself and Jody because we "appreciate grass". I hope you'll stop by her blog and read it!
I've been visited by a brown thrasher the last couple of days. I heard a loud "chit, chit" noise outside my window and when I went to investigate I saw "him" hopping about finding food in the long grass. I think he's a very impressive bird. I believe he lives in the woods at the edge of my pasture. I see him fly out of the trees now and then.

My last two houseplants have been released to the wild! I am not a houseplant person, and I don't like having to repot plants as they get larger and larger. I had about nine plants from my husband's funeral last fall and one by one I got rid of them. These two will spend the summer on my deck and then will go the way of all their wild friends this winter. Sorry...is that hard hearted of me? At least they had a great summer!
And now it's time to prepare for work. Lord, please help me with my attitude today and don't let my boss even think of asking me to help this weekend. Amen! :)
Have a sunshiney day filled with shalom!
