A Moment in the Sun

This afternoon I took a moment....

I went outside and sat in the sun on a blanket on my lawn and sipped a nice cup of tea.

Enjoyed a few kid-free moments before son#1 would get home on the bus and/or son's 2 and 3 would wake up from their naps.

Cool breeze, warm sunshine, birds singing, wind in the trees, and the sounds of the gravel pit (we live right beside Oxford Sand and Gravel and can hear the sounds of the truck moving, sorting and grinding dirt).

Just ambient noise....nice.

No chatty kids, no crying baby, no "please mum" or "why's", just nice noise.

Needed.

Welcomed.

Enjoyed.

Ahhhhh.

Thank you Lord.

  1. I love it! You just have to fully enjoy moments like those because they are so rare and precious. They always make me feel so much closer to God--when I can shut out all of the distraction and just "be." So glad you let yourself have a moment!
