Day 131, May 9

A few days ago, as I walked around our neighborhood, I made a special effort to appreciate the beauty of a spring morning.  In particular, I paid attention to the sounds.  Though no expert on birds, I identifed the cooing of morning doves, the sassy chirp of sparrows, the sharp caw of a crow.  They blended together to make a lovely symphony, complete with high and low notes.

It reminded me of a Primary song from many years ago.


"Whenever I hear the sound of a bird,
Or look at the blue, blue sky,
Whenever I feel the rain on my face,
Or the wind as ir rushes by,
Whenever I touch a velvet rose
Or walk by a lilac tree,
I'm glad that I live in this beautiful world
Heavenly Father created for me."

So, for today, I am grateful for this beautiful world Heavenly Father created for me, for all of us.

  1. I love this fact sang it to my grandkids "The Taylor Tots" who are in OKC......along with: "In the Leafy tree-tops the birds sing good morning....." A funny story, when I was singin this to Isaac a few years ago, when I got to the part: "In my little garden the flowers are nodding..." Well he thought I was saying "In my little garden the flowers are naughty!!" he asked how flowers could be naughty. Nothing like primary songs to grateful for.....Thanks for your blog, it always brightens my day. I love you.
