Thank the Lord for the Outside

flower-690092_640When my husband was about to be released from the hospital, my two sons  and I were given the names of  four rehab facilities which we hurriedly visited. We had four criteria:

1) that the facility not smell bad;

2) that there be a program of activities;

3) that the staff be friendly and caring; and

4) that there be an outside sitting area.

A few days later while sitting in that outside area, I was inspired to write:

THANK THE LORD FOR THE OUTSIDE

Thank the Lord for the outside.

Thank the Lord for the trees

Thank the Lord for the sound of water falling

And the cooling gentle breeze

 

Thank the Lord for the sunshine

Bringing warmth and bringing light

Thank the Lord that I know

Everything’s gonna be alright
