One recent morning I had breakfast alone...
just me & the birds at my feeder.
Bob had slipped out in the wee hours of the morning
to begin snow removal & I slept in!
Being the big metropolis that we are,
we recently were finally blessed with a Panera Bread Company
& I splurged on some pastries.
A perfect morning for a muffin & cup of coffee-
or at least some java with a whole lot of cream!
Have you ever noticed how quiet it gets with a new snowfall?
I took a few extra minutes and enjoyed the beauty of the fresh snow
out my kitchen window.
It was as if it was just me, the cardinals & chickadees...
& my Saviour
speaking softly to me in the quiet of the morning.
And for a few precious minutes,
I let the cares & burdens
of my world slip off of my shoulders.
I often find myself getting too busy & burdened down
with what is on my "too do" list.
Taking a few minutes for myself made my day go much better.
Quiet times...I need them more often.
