The day was planned.
Christmas decorations were brought down from storage the day before,
each labeled box had been placed in the room it would be unpacked,
I was excited to begin decorating for this special Christmas season,
this most wonderful time of the year.
First thing first though;
the usual early morning gathering of shelled sunflower seeds and meal worms for feeding the birds,
putting on my coat, slipping off my slippers and sliding into my outdoor boots,
heading through the back door and onto the deck with the songbirds waiting for me at the feeders
and that's when this ordinary day turned extraordinary.
Pink hues seemed to engulf the world.
All was pink, purple and blue as my eyes gazed out past the deck,
through the trees and into the sky...it was a glorious sight!
There was calm,
an instant importance of things so much grander than my plan for the day.
I was taken past the decorations and straight to the reason for this most wonderful time of year.
there is a plan,
we have a future
it is secure.
It is not wearied by our sins, our indifference, and, therefore, it is quite relentless in its determination that we should be cured of those sins, at whatever cost to us, and whatever cost to Him."
Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!
