It was early but the weight of the day was heavy on my mind.
The morning routine of reading the daily newspaper had not provided any relief.
Not even the comics brought a smile.
After filling my coffee cup for the second time I walked out the back door onto the deck.
My heart seemed to relax as I noticed the flowers that were blooming.
God must have known I needed more.
It was then I noticed a squirrel using the top of our fence as a roadway.
I wondered where he was going, I kept watching.
He stopped, sat up and scratched his stomach.
Now that brought a smile to my face...it was God's gift to me that morning.
Remembering how blessed I am and how much God cares,
The rest of my day was also a gift.
