It is great to know you are alive. I can feel your breath and hear you breathe. Your breath is like a feathery touch as it blows gently against my skin. The slow back and forth sway of the thin branches creak with each inhale and exhale of your breath.
Your eyes open slowly. A beam of white light spreads above the darkness on the horizon. Patches of light fog filters the white glow. As the sun rises and the fog lifts, a bright, clear, new day begins. It’s like you are smiling and happy to see me.
The sweet smell of life is all around. The potpourri of pines, persimmons and the musty scent of rich soil permeates the area. Drips of morning dew glisten on the patches of grass like a gentle mist sprinkled down from heaven.
The choir of birds sing their chorus of melodies of joy as their day opens. It is like angels singing praise and worship as you watch over your children. Thank you Lord for my life, it is a pleasure to serve you and do your will.
