Day 159: Spending Time Outside

I went to a birthday party/cookout this afternoon and the weather was absolutely perfect for it! The weather was gorgeous and the temperature was perfect, not too hot in the sun, but not too cold in the shade. I think everyone there enjoyed being outside, eating, talking, playing ladder golf and corn hole on a beautiful afternoon!

It’s been quite a while since the last time I spent so much time outside, and truly enjoyed it. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy being outside, but not if I’m being bothered by bugs, or if it’s really hot. I didn’t have to worry about either of those things today!

Day 159: Thank you Lord for time spent outdoors. It’s so wonderful to enjoy your creation and even more so when the weather is nice!

Day 129: Rainbows

It rained a bit this afternoon/evening and around 7 o’clock there was the most beautiful rainbow across my backyard. I’ve always loved rainbows, they’re so beautiful and are such a wonderful reminder of God’s promises. Genesis 9:12-15 “I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life.”

I’ve seen quite a few rainbows in my life but there are two I remember the most. One was huge, it went from one side of the sky to the other over top of us, and you could see the whole thing except at the very top straight over head. The other was a triple rainbow I saw while in Denver, CO after a huge storm where Tornado sirens went off. Every time I see a rainbow in nature I think of Genesis 9, especially after a bad storm it’s such a wonderful reminder.

Day 129: Thank you Lord for rainbows, not only for their beauty but the reminder that you will never destroy the world with a flood again.

Day 114: Flowers Blooming

Over the past few days I’ve been noticing all the flowers blooming outside. Now it really feels like spring to me, it’s so beautiful! There are so many colors in flowers, and I think God expressed a great deal of creativity when he created them. Pansies are my favorite flowers, I love all the different colors there, and you get two colors for one! But I love all flowers, I just wish they didn’t wreck such havoc on my allergies!

Day 114: Thank you Lord for flowers blooming and all the beauty they display to enhance our world for your glory.
