8:23 am

I’m sitting outside with my coffee and the quiet of all four kids off to school.

Today is going to be a good day. I’ve decided.

It just feels good.

I haven’t been writing in my blog as much lately because my spirit has been quiet. My life is busy, but my spirit is quiet and it’s nice. I don’t write when my spirit is quiet because I think it’s better to not force something. Sometimes silence is best.

Things are taking root. Shifting even.

I’m taking classes, I started working full time outside the home, celebrated my birthday last week and I have four little girls in four different schools. I’m also mentally preparing for a conference I’ll be speaking at in a few weeks. It’s a writers conference that I’m extremely honored to be a part of. I hope it happens more.

So, that’s where I am. Where are you? How are you?

I have to run out the door again. My keys are in my hand.

…let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.1 Peter 3:4 ESV

    There is something so beautiful about peace in the midst of chaotic busy. And also to refrain from forcing something to write when there's no need. Silence is beautiful.

    I am in my own corner of the world, sipping coffee, and enjoying the peace with you.

    Have a great day, friend. I hope to meet you one of these…

    Btw: that verse is perfect. 🙂

    I perked when I saw "and the quiet of all four kids off to school".

    Oh, how I cherish that quiet, with four myself. Silence is so inviting sometimes. I am struggling with peace right now, and resting and trusting and relaxing.

    Praying for peace admist my chaos.

    Sandee: trusting is the key, isn't it? 🙂

    And, we wait.
