quiet moments

I've had some slow-down opportunities lately, mainly with my grand-babies,
but also long prayers that turn into begging as I ask the Lord to reveal His will to me constantly...
I stood watching the rain today and was so thankful for all the Lord has given us understanding that it's not by our own hands.

Slowing down...taking it in.

One precious slow-down day I had recently was when Trinity was with us and we decided to try to get some flowers planted and various tasks done.

Anyone that works with a 5-yr old knows nothing happens fast, so it allowed me to sit and watch, and listen and wait, while I watched her work so hard and try new things.

And of course the only possible ending to such a day is bath time!
We worked outside all day, enjoying one another, thankful for quiet family times and hoping this would be an annual event - cherishing it all so much! And next year we hope to enjoy all 3 grand-babies working with us - we missed Oliver and Margot who were on vacation!

Fancy accomplishments mean little compared to life forming quiet talks and intention time given.

Psalm 118:24
This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
