Oh, I just love Spring in the Lowcountry! The breeze is cool, the sun is gorgeous (not yet sweltering) the mosquitos haven't become the size of birds and we can play outside all. day. long.
And play we have. We head out to the great back yard after breakfast, coming in only for eating purposes and then right back out again. After dinner, there are baths and bed. It's a beautiful routine.
We will continue rejoicing in God's creation in this fashion until summer heat hits. Then just before lunch, we will seek respite inside and wander back out again when the evening breeze blows. And it will become it's own beautiful routine.
Which makes think about this.
All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small, all things wise and wonderful: the Lord God made them all.
1.Each little flower that opens, each little bird that sings, God made their glowing colors, and made their tiny wings. (Refrain)
2. The purple-headed mountains, the river running by, the sunset and the morning that brightens up the sky. (Refrain)
3. The cold wind in the winter, the pleasant summer sun, the ripe fruits in the garden: God made them every one. (Refrain)
4. God gave us eyes to see them, and lips that we might tell how great is God Almighty, who has made all things well. (Refrain)
