which is infinite which is yes

i thank You God for most this amazing day
e e cummings

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday;this is the birth
day of life and love and wings:and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any-lifted from the no
of all nothing-human merely being
doubt unimaginably You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

Freedom!!! I am finally able to go outside and walk for real!! The wound is healing up (thanks to the aforementioned Wanda) and I just feel better. My Don has been taking me outside to walk a mile or so for the last couple of days, and he reads our daily Bible reading (our pastor has challenged our congregation to read 1John this week, and to ask the Lord to open the sacred book to us!) as we go. It's been so great, walking and talking about the Lord with my favorite friend.

Today is Tuesday. The sixth Tuesday. The sixth Tuesday that my son has worshipped my King in person. How I ache for him...but am so grateful for the distracting beauty of the Lord today.

(pics are from today's walk, tho one is the spot but not my pic)
