Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless HIS HOLY NAME.

Bird-Chirping Weather

I saw the following quote on Pinterest, and I just loved it!

 What a wonderful feeling Spring brings, doesn't it? It reminds me how blessed I am to be alive!

While we don't have hard winters in this part of the world, there is just a wonderful thing about early-morning sunshine, deliciously warm days, birds chirping, lovely butterflies flitting around; my heart is gladdened to see my children run outside in the sunshine, chasing one another, or kicking a soccer ball.  Baby Tommy shrieks gleefully at a walk outside in his stroller.

How could we NOT enjoy Spring?!

But with the feelings that Spring brings, we should be reminded that every day we live is a blessing, and an opportunity to bless the Lord with all that is within me.  He has done so much for me.

"God that made the world, and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;  Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;"  Acts 17:24,25.

So...whatever you're going through...whatever your worries...whatever your circumstances:  Eyes up (on the Lord)!  Heart and lips tuned and ready to sing praises to our Creator!  For if He sees the sparrow that falls to the ground, I know that He sees me, He loves me, He blesses me every day.

And..."This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."

Happy Spring, Everyone!!
