The Sun Upon My Face
Let the wind blow east,
west, north, or south,
the immortal soul will take its
flight to the destined point.
It was peaceful sitting here watching my fellow co-workers walking in and out of the building. With the Sun streaming through the open window, I ate my grill cheese that Emily prepared for me and drank a freshly brewed cup of coffee. Mmm, a perfect meal on a perfect Spring day. I need more days like these.
Once again, I wished I was living in the country. Once again, I wished I had a porch, a balcony or even a patio. Any of these would do, as long as I could sit outside on a day like this one.
The heart yearns always for what it cannot have. Why is that? Emily's comment came back to me. Mom, Joey's place is so peaceful. A scenery out of every window and we have to go back to concrete. Ain't that the truth, honey. Ain't that the truth.
Looking back on that day, I really enjoyed myself. I felt at home, completely at ease, as if I belonged there. How many times in our life do we ever feel like that? If any at all? Enjoying each and everyday is truly a blessing. God has been good to me. To us. This beautiful Earth is an example of God's gift to us to enjoy and bask in. Take a moment to stop and take a look around you. Admire the creation. Admire the handiwork. Then, be thankful to the One who provided it for us. For you.
Have a blessed day everyone.
