It's A Great Day

I arose from my bed about 9:30 AM EDST with thoughts of a plate full of ham and a couple of eggs plus a couple dups of coffee. My daughter and I watched the online service at our church. My gaze wandered about as we sat in the den. In the back yard I saw a squirrel scampering about. There were azaleas of every conceivable color, some in full bloom, some just past their peak and others ready to burst forth in full bloom at any moment. And there is a special one that's the most beautiful of all. It's the Mary Lynn variety, the name of my wife who passed away in 2013. The Hosta is growing like a weed and the deer will soon be by to take a few nibbles of the tender leaves. The tulips have shed their petals but just a few days ago they were a thing of beauty. The trees are decked out in fresh greenery and pollen from the pines has painted much of the area a shade of yellow.

Turning my aim 180 degrees, I see a beautiful pink dogwood in our courtyard and to my left a maple tree fully leafed. The grass and weeds emerged from their winter hibernation to indicate it's time to get out the mower. The birds are singing and it sounds like a huge symphony orchestra, although I did not recognize the tune.

And it's EASTER !!! How can we not be thankful?. I have been truly blessed.

Joe, these words are the wisdom of a man who has experienced a few Easter mornings. From some of your other posts I know that you spent some Easters in places not as beautiful as this. I pray you enjoy many more happy and healthy Easters. When this Coronavirus thing is over I would love to buy you a cup of coffee and talk about the things you have seen in your lifetime.

Amen Mr Joe
