We have had the most beautiful spring weather the last few days. Everything is beginning to bloom and the birds are singing and making their nests. I've been able to work in the garden and yard a bit and do some painting. My friend, Katie, gave me a new book, "Astrid & Veronika", and I set on my backporch in the sun yesterday afternoon and read. That's one of my favorite things to do but I don't often allow myself that luxury.
Last evening, as I drove through Springfield, I was amazed at how quickly everything had "burst forth".
I pray today for the people of Japan. What an overwhelming task lays ahead for them.
