Glorious


She looks out over the field of daisies still dew kissed from the night before and is in awe of their beauty. She begins to walk through the wild flowers making her way to the lake. She smiles at the feeling of the grass tickling her ankles. Ever so lightly she brushes her hands across the top of the flowers feeling the soft petals on the tips of her fingers. All of her senses fulfilled. She closes her eyes and takes in the warmth of the sunshine on her face. She thinks to herself...this is a little bit of heaven on earth...and something inside her knows...this is where she will heal.

Glorious is a big word to me. Do you know what I mean? How some words feel loud and huge? I had wanted to use Gratitude or Grace....they are quieter, calmer words...but I realized that I used both of them last year on my "G" day. Maybe I am looking for a soft word since it is 5:00 a.m. as I am writing this. :-)

Glorious might be big but it does encompass where my thoughts are today. I look at this picture and am so thankful for life. For moments like this that I can relax into, for the life that I have lived and am living....that my feet hit the floor this morning. Life is glorious. It is huge. We are given gifts every day. I have learned that even through pain, there is light...if we just open our eyes and hearts to it.

So, how about you? What is the gift you've been given on this glorious "G" day? What are you thankful for? Celebrating Easter, big family plans?

Happy, Hoppy Weekend!!!

  1. Glorious is the PERFECT word to use today. And you're right about the other words being more quiet. Glorious is a stand on top of a hill with arms stretched toward the sky in sheer joy kinda word. (Like the image from "The Sound of Music.") Glorious is singing "Hallelujah" as the sun wakes up to shine during an Easter sunrise service. Yes, a perfect choice for today. And I hope your Easter, and the whole weekend is ... glorious.

  21. I could almost feel the part of the story about being tickled by the grass. Thanks for shining a glorious light on your readers and reminding me of a word that I haven't heard, said or read in ages :)

    Sunlight and an early morning are the gifts that I've been given on this day. It's nice to be able to get a head start on the daily tasks that need to be completed before the sun goes down. I'm thankful for having shelter and blogging friends.

    Cheers!
