"To sit in the shade on a fine day and look upon verdure is the most perfect refreshment."
Verdure is green growing vegetation. Think grass and trees and plants. Having a new puppy has taken me outside much more often lately for obvious reasons. I love the big old shade tree in our front yard. It's some kind of Maple. I think it would take two people to get their arms around the trunk.
God's so good to provide cooler shade on hot days. Just think. He didn't have to make it cooler in the shade, but he did. I'm also thankful that our creek is cold even in the summertime. It's just about a quarter mile walk down the pasture then we can take that first icy step into the water. You know the one. The step that makes you think you want to get right back out. ~smile~ The one that you cringe over just before the kids splash that frigid water all over you.
May God bless you. Enjoy your week!
