Thankful Thursdays

As I was driving through our town today I noticed all the trees. Where I live there are streets where it's literally a canopy of trees, and unlike the rest of the country, they stay green year round. I thought about growing up in New York and how there was very little greenery in the city; lots of tall buildings and cement sidewalks, and not much else. I'm so thankful the Lord has seen fit to put me in a place that's so green. I love the grass, the trees, the plants and flowers and natural beauty. I hope I never have to live in a mega-city again. Give me small town living any day!

Thankful Thursdays is hosted this month by Iris at Grace Alone. Have a blessed rest of your week.

I love trees and green, too! How nice that you get to enjoy that year round.

Thank you so much for your sweet words!
