I worked in the yard for several hours. The breeze was blowing pretty hard and the air was a little cool. My first reaction was a cringe in the chill. This all really does bring me to a point. I saw myself on this beautiful spring day, daring to turn a frown at the wind and sun. Counting your blessings is a much better occupation for the soul. I looked up at the wide open space above me and thanked God for the chill in the air and the wind on my face. I need to do that more often.
