A Sunny May Day

I am sitting in my home in the middle of the state of Maine and am looking outside at a beautiful sunny second day of May. It's been a long time since it's been warm and sunny. We have had one of the coldest winters on record and spring just doesn't want to be found. Today makes all those cold winter days seem far away. The sky is the most deepest shade of blue and my forsythia bush outside my window is beginning to blossom. All this beauty makes me stop and realize that we have beauty and wonder all around us. God has provided ways of showing his personality in the creation that we live in. We just need to look for it. I imagine God loves color which we see in the flowers and trees. He loves music which we can hear from all the birds in the sky. And he has a sense of humor.... we can see that circumstances we sometimes encounter. I guess I'm being reflective today. But the weather and the beauty has swept me off my feet and I have to praise the One who created it!! Have a  blessed weekend all!!
