For flowers that bloom about our feet, Father, we that Thee, For tender grass so fresh and sweet, Father, we thank Thee, For the Song of bird and hum of bee, For all things fair we hear or see, Father in Heaven, we thank Thee.
For blue of stream and blue of sky, Father, we thank Thee, For pleasant shade of branches high, Father, we thank Thee, For fragrant air and cooling breeze, For beauty of the blooming trees, Father in Heaven, we thank Thee.
For this new morning with its light, Father, we thank Thee, For rest and shelter of the night, Father, we thank Thee, For health and food, for love and friends, For everything Thy goodness sends, Father in Heaven, we thank Thee.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
At the Dunow house we have been going through the yucky bugs. We all start to feel better then something else comes up. I was getting pretty burned out on it all. Saturday I drove the kids up to this place that Troy was doing some Scouting stuff. While I was there I watched the kids all play and be one with nature. I sat and watched Logan help cook for the leaders and was amazed how grown up he is. I am so proud of the person he is. Being in a place that our Heavenly Father has created for us, I was overwhelmed how blessed Troy and I are. I am the luckiest gal to have Troy.
All I needed was to sit back, take a deep breath and look around me. The beauty and fresh air around me is what I needed to put things into perspective. Life is great.
"I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library." -Jane Austen Pride and Prejudice, 1811
