6:30AM - The sun has just come up. The geese are flying south to the Canal. As I walk down my front walk, I hear so many different birds - cardinals, robins, chickadees, goldfinches, redwinged blackbirds, and the brown thrasher. There is dew on the grass and leaves. I can smell the dirt from the field and know that the farmer neighbor will be planting this week.
Down by the Canal, I hear another brown thrasher, again from the highest tree branch. The Canal is smoothly drifting water today. More trees are blooming - it is not just my dogwoods that are late, it seems to be the norm this year.
It is so peaceful early, thanking God for all and that He is near ends my walk.
