Oh what a day!

It was a day to savour.  A day to relish.  A day to delight and absorb.  Spring seems to be here.  And what a gift that is.  I guess when you have to wait for something, when you have to long for something, it is more precious when it comes.  Today was a precious and delight-full day.  A day filled with gifts from God, lots of little gifts that brought a smile to my heart and showed me that God is at work and ever present.  Aaah.  It is good.

My list of gifts continues.....
