Peaceful Day

Its a peaceful day...

*Sun is shining
*Birds are chirping
*My Camellia is in full bloom
*The peach tree is covered in blooms and now green leaves are coming out also
*The blueberry bushes are getting leaves
*Clothes drying on the clothes line
*Praise music playing in the kitchen
*Sewing machines are humming along...just finished Katie's quilted, pink John Deere Purse, one for Amy is next. Katie is finishing her Flag wall hanging.
*Homemade vegetable/beef soup in the crockpot
*Greg & the kids are getting the chicken coop ready for its occupants

On the Sunday's & Wed.'s leading up to Resurrection Sunday our Pastor is teaching on the "I AM" statements that Jesus proclaimed in the book of John. These have been very good messages. Last night we heard...John 8:43 Jesus is saying..."Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say." The picture that popped in my mind when I heard this was, a parent cupping their hands on either side of their childs face and saying "I am talking to you, look at me and listen". How many times does the Lord want to get our attention and say...stop with the busyness and listen, I am talking to you! I am resolving to be more attentive & listen. Thanks for the reminder Lord!


  1. Great word Donna! I love your blog!

  2. I am resolved no longer to linger . . .
