I was feeling a bit overwhelmed this evening. Our problems may be small compared to other peoples, but tonight they seemed to all be piling on. I felt the need to wallow in misery.
What I did was take my cup of tea outside and sit on the front steps.
I felt agitated and upset.
The flowers on the trees are beautiful - pink and white - and light green leaf buds.
There leaves on the red maple glowed in the late afternoon sun.
The grass, newly cut was a brilliant shade of green.
A father was pushing his daughter on a swing in the park across the way.
It's a beautiful evening.
My spirit felt soothed.
God really is good to us - even when life seems too much - he has ways of reminding us that we really are blessed.
