Early morning light from the sun, here we are the university church where my eldest daughter studies. It is a rare day indeed that we are up and about before sunrise, and on a Sunday at that.
Do you love mornings? I do! I wake up early to prepare the things needed for the day. I love waking up to the sound of chirping birds outside our windows. I like how the early morning rays play through the screen at the back part of the house where we can see the sun rise. Don’t you just love puttering in the house when everyone is still asleep?
Happiness is enjoying the little things in life: a smile, a pat on the back, a little breeze to help cool you down for just a minute, a warm sunshine after days of rain, a glass of cool water to ease a parched throat or a little weed flower that grew amidst the overgrown front yard grass.
These little things, compared to the grand scheme of life, are often unappreciated and unnoticed but when we look back, we realize that these made us feel more loved, more alive, more appreciative and more joyful.
The earth gives and we take away. Have we done anything to give back to the one that gives it all and until there’s no more? Have you plundered more than you’ll ever need because you want to have a lot of money in your pockets, more food than you can eat, more bags and shoes than you can ever use, burn a lot of carbon foorprints and leave nothing to those who toil the earth so you can enrich yourself?
