Pumpkin is playing with all his toys quietly.
There are no errands to run today.
No laundry to do.
The house is clean (enough).
I spent several hours on my projects last night.

I'm enjoying the sounds of peace.
Little noises from Pumpkin
as he talks to his bear and plays with his bus.
Gentle music plays in the background.
Life is good.

It's so wonderful to just take a few minutes and enjoy it all.
To notice it happening.
To feel the peace unfold.
Thank you, Lord.
May I seek these moments everyday.
May I seek Your face
and listen to Your still small voice,
even when it's not quiet and peaceful.

Soon, it will be time for lunch.
The phone will ring.
Pumpkin will tire of playing alone.
But for now,
just sitting here listening to the sounds of my own breathing,
feeling the gentle, and not so gentle, nudgings of this new life inside,
is enough.

I smile and breathe deeply.
Thank you, Jesus, for being
the Prince of Peace.

What a lovely post. I felt peaceful all over just reading it.
(I'm alone for the afternoon-a rare treat-so I'm enjoying peace and quiet also).
