It's Tuesday morning and I'm sitting here drinking my big 'ole cup of coffee and enjoying the peace and quiet of an empty/sleeping house. The boys are all gone to school, Mike's at work and as a rare treat, Rachael is still snoozing.
Again, I have a huge list of things to do and I won't bore you with the details, but I can't help but enjoy this little bit of peace. I have the window behind me open and the robins are singing as the cool, fresh, Spring air fills my house. In the distance, I can hear the hum of the traffic on the highway, but it's peaceful and I don't get that too often.
Thank you, Lord, for the gift of peace in such a hectic life. Thank you for sleeping children and a quiet house. It's little things like this that are so precious sometimes. Thank you for coffee, Lord, and a chance to marvel at what you have created!
