Perfect Weather

I was going to write about Divine Providence fact, I had started a post on it yesterday, as I have picked up where I left off in Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange's book Providence.
I'll save it for another day, though.

Why? Because today is too spectacularly beautiful not to write about!

Spring always seems to come in bits and pieces around here. We have a few nice days, then winter returns (so it seems); and by this time, I am really ready for some warmish, sun-shiney weather!

Today is perfect. The temperature right now is hovering around 70, I think, and there is just the slightest breeze. There's not a cloud in the sky.

If you look closely in the above photo, you might see a deer or two. They were cleaning up some of the hay the horses had left behind.

I sat out in the backyard with my four furry friends for a while. Here's one of them:

Here's a view of the chapel. Things are greening up!

I sat there, thinking that it was hard to imagine a more perfect day, even in Heaven! But then I did imagine it. I thought of the passage in one of the Narnia books (the last one, maybe?), where Narnia passes away and the New Narnia emerges, and everything is simply more itself than it was before - more vivid, more perfect, more real. 

Seems that Divine Providence is at work as usual. God knows I needed this day! I am drinking it all in and preparing for the ongoing battles ahead!

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me!
