Expanding my world and a day of R and R
I'm at home most days of the week, but one day I had to run some errands on the other side of town and much to my amazement the forsythia was blooming over there. I guess we don't have any on my street so I hadn't seen any yet this Spring. How wonderful it was to see the blaze of gold when I was driving down the road. Just a year ago, I was still working I was out and about more and saw more. It's not good to have such a tiny corner of the world that you don't see much.
There were also yards with colorful Easter egg trees in them and delightful plastic bunnies everywhere. My neighborhood must still be stuck in winter as I've not seen any decorations anywhere.
It is great to be able to get out and see what others are doing. You can imagine my whole outlook on the day brightened just seeing the cheerful colors of the forsythia and the Easter egg trees.
It made me think that maybe I should be doing more here at my house to brighten the day for others. So today I'm going to hunt up the silk flowers I have stuck away for safekeeping and put them out in the flower box on the front porch and I believe I also have a colorful Easter flag to hang off the flag pole on the front porch too. I might even have a stuffed bunny or two to add to the decorations. We'll see.
Making the world a more cheerful place and brightening anthers day doesn't really take much at all and I'm going to try to do my part.
I'll be off to church this morning as usual and will be praying for you all!
Lenten tip for today: Pray about the most recent situation you can think of where your actions upset someone you know.
I hope your Sunday is filled with some of that wonderful R and R that we all need so much. Brighten your world and you'll shine brighter too!
