Time with Jesus

My Journal entry from this afternoon ...
"Sunshine!!
You do not even know the joy I have right now ... 56 F (yes, that is the temperature :), sunshine, just a whisper of a breeze, purple-plaid clogs, French Vanilla Cappuccino, 2 of my favorite Bibles, Jesus in my heart, finding all I need is Jesus, K. J. plays on my MP3 player, Leah's freshly washed sheets and blankets hanging on the line a few feet away, my green rose table, bench and chairs! My list could go on ... but I won't.
The sun feels so warm on my face and arms, but not even close to being as warm as the Son in my heart!

Oh, Jesus I love Thee!!
God has so graciously answered my cried-out pleas for a love and joy for Him! Oh, the joy and fullness Jesus brings!! These feeble words don't even begin to touch how I feel. I feel like singing out praises to my Jesus at the top of my lungs!
"Oh, taste and see that the LORD IS GOOD ... " Psalm 34:8a " (emphasis mine)

My table at first ...
Keda was enjoying the sunshine with me ...
Said clogs ...
And again, this time you can see the wool socks I have on ... :)
My two bibles, two journals, pen bag, cup of cappuccino, MP3 player and pen ...
Velvet-y ribbon I glued onto my journal for a bookmark ... it's very soft and pink! ...
The one of the many pictures in my Bible to help my find my favorite verses quicker ...

How special!!! I love those moments with the Lord!! I feel the need to take extra time for one of those special "outings" again. I wanted to on our trip to Florida, but the beach was always busy and there were always people around, so it was harder to spend time with the Lord without distractions. :-(

Isn't the warmer weather lovely?

The pictures are beautiful! :-)

I like your pictures. I love spending time in the Lord's Word and with my journal, which in fact haven't been writing in lately. I try to though.
