the wind and the blinds.

Today it's a nice 80ish degrees. So it's summer...I think. With the Bay Area, more specifically living here right by the water, summer weather is rare... in my opinion. (I'm almost always cold so it's usually colder than it's hotter.) So for the first time in months, the heat's called for me to open the windows and let a cool breeze come in. I'd been sitting here for about three hours before I realized I wasn't playing any music. And usually whenever I'm working I need to play some music to keep me focused and productive. But not today. Today I listen to the music of the wind breezing through the trees, wrestling through its leaves. The light "kink" and "cant" noises the blinds make as the breeze hits it against the window. The steps of children running up their front doors and neighbors taking walks. It all lulls together to this calming, gentle melody.

I love days like this. In these moments it's easy to remember that today is God's day. And not just that today is Sunday, but that I owe every day of my life to Him. Every joyful, peaceful moment is His. He gives every good and perfect gift. And today, right now is a good and perfect gift for sure.
