Backyard Oasis

2 Comments

It takes very little for me to feel content. Somewhere near the top of my list are flowers, a cool morning breeze, and my sweet beagle-lab, Buddy. A notch above those are my wonderful family, friends who make me laugh, and the unconditional love of my Creator.

I don’t require much in the way of latest-greatest gadgets, but give me my Kindle and a good cup of coffee and I’m set. Satisfied. Happy to not chase after every new trend or overthink what others might think of my simple life.

Here’s the view I enjoyed early this morning, right in my own backyard. See? Sometimes the best things in life are free.

“For flowers that bloom about our feet,
Father, we thank Thee.
For tender grass so fresh, so 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.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Some see nature all ridicule and deformity… and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.” ~William Blake
