"Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known."

Outside my window...
Crisp morning sunlight is flooding the road platinum. Dogs are barking.
There is a sense of stillness
I am thinking...
About how important connection is.
I am thankful...
For a husband that just brought me bread and jam, a cup of coffee and a little time alone before he goes off to work.
In the kitchen...
Roast dinner with chicken, potatoes, french beans and carrots for dinner today.
I look forward to roast days.
I am wearing...
I'm still in my pajamas. It's early enough still... sortof :)
I am creating...
Another birthday crown
I am going...
On my first holiday in 10 years in a weeks time!!!
I have butterflies just writing that.
I am learning
To cultivate my own time out of the day, to be, to listen, to pray and to grow in myself.
I am also learning, now that the girls are getting older, to give them this too.
I am pondering...
About what real holiness is all about.
"And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."
I like this idea of holiness.
A favourite quote for today...
"No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to ...others is that it makes them kind themselves."
- Amelia Earhart
One of my favourite things...
Sitting in the garden, with the sun sighing deep on my face, listening to the girls playing happily.
A peek into my day...
And a book my great Aunt who was a nun published many years ago.
My children love it.
I really want to republish it to preserve it.
I think it is the last known copy:(
