and it was very good

I’ve been lounging on the couch this afternoon, enjoying the spring breeze drifting into the room, and loving the view outside the door.  There are too many colors of green to count, and the flowers are blue and pink and white and yellow.  The Carolina Jasmine is reaching far beyond its trellis. The hostas and lilies and peonies have pushed thru the mulch.  The weedy yard even has some semblance of beauty.  As for the bird bath, all the splashing and fun will soon need a replenishing of water. This beauty is fresh and renewing and tender.  The late afternoon sun and the Carolina blue sky set atop of this splendor.

This morning I read from Isaiah 45:8.
"Drip down, O heavens, from above, And let the clouds pour down righteousness; Let the earth open up and salvation bear fruit, And righteousness spring up with it. I, the LORD, have created it.

I’ll add Genesis 1:31, God saw all that he had made, and it was very good
