Some might argue that today is not a “Deck – Sittin’ Day”, but I beg to differ. Yes, it’s 30 something degrees, and yes, the wind is kicking up but…it’s snowing! The day before Thanksgiving and it’s snowing. I came out to gather the cushions for their hibernation in the basement this winter, but seeing the snow, a blanket and some hot chocolate are calling and I say it’s a great day for deck sittin’.
The birds are busy at my feeders like scurrying cooks at the grocery store rushing for last minute ingredients. The Bluebirds are all a fuss in and out of their wooden house preparing for their family gathering I guess. That’s what I’ll be doing in a few hours.
I’m sure many are working today with their sights on an extra day off this week and the news reports that many are stuck in airports all over the eastern seaboard, I really hate that.
But right now it seems as though the clock has stopped on my deck for just a little while and I’m so grateful for this peaceful, quiet snowfall and time to reflect and give thanks.
Psalm 118:1 Give thanks to the Lord for He is good and His faithful love endures forever.
