spring appetite

I'm convinced that we have an appetite for natural beauty.  This is the time of year when the natural world buds and blossoms and branches out with honey suckle fragrance.  I went for a ride yesterday afternoon with the top down on the convertible and drank it all in.  I didn't solve any problems or accomplish anything productive on that ride, but something satisfying took place just drinking in the handiwork of God.  We were placed in a Garden at the beginning of time and we still find deep satisfaction as we dwell and move through the garden of spring that we now enjoy.

Happy Mother's Day to my Mom and all mom's.  You were the first to love us and through you we understand what sacrificial love and unconditional love are all about.  May you all enjoy this lovely spring day.

Isaiah 61:11 
The Sovereign Lord will show his justice to the nations of the world.
    Everyone will praise him!
His righteousness will be like a garden in early spring,
    with plants springing up everywhere.
