For the past week or so, I've gotten back into the habit of heading out to the deck with my coffee BEFORE heading to my computer. I sit out there, weather permitting, with my iPad and read my Bible as the sun peeks up over the trees that line my yard. The birds are busy, and sometimes their songs distract me from my meditation. Usually though, the morning music reminds of the beauty of God's creation.
This morning was cool and dry, especially compared with the heat and humidity of the past few days. A house wren was singing its heart out at the top of a pine tree, and a cardinal was calling from the other side of the yard. A robin sang its cheerful morning song as it searched for breakfast. Such delight! Even the vehement argument that suddenly broke out between two blue jays and a crow just added to the morning.
I need to figure out a way to bottle the joy and delight and share it with others.
