Today right now...

Easter weekend brings with it huge moments of awe and gratitude for amazing sacrifice of Christ on behalf of the very humanity that rejected him. The Bible tells of the temple veil being torn in two when Jesus died signifying our entrance into the presence of God. I think the tearing of the temple also gave those who accept his sacrifice new eyes to see all that this abundant life means. This morning I find myself quietly grateful for-
The rainy (but not stormy) night that just passed, windows open and almost too lovely to sleep through. In fact, I didn't sleep all the way through but somehow, laying quietly and experiencing the night seemed almost more restful.
Hot coffee (you had to see that coming!) and pretty coffee cups.
Donny laying with his head in my lap as I enjoy aforementioned coffee.
Text messages that I receive when I turn on my cell phone in the morning, sent by the Mr. while I was still sleeping.
My truck with a full tank of gas that makes the drive to work almost fun!
Coconut lime verbena body spray from Bath & Body Works, smells like springtime!
The sound of birds singing as I awaken.
This isn't the unabridged list, it only represents the things that right now, I am thankful for.

The beauty of the dogwood and redbuds in bloom...tulips, phlox and wild onions growing. A beautiful right now!
