My peaceful place.

Within your heart, keep one still, secret spot where dreams may go. - Louise Driscoll

This is a photo of my Koi pond, my sanctuary. This is where I spend most mornings quietly sipping my coffee and enjoying the quiet first moments of the day. I feel very close to God when I sit here. Maybe it's because it is so peaceful or maybe it's just because this is the only time of day that I have to myself.  I have discoverd that I need a few minutes each day to reflect. This morning it was 20 degrees outside and yet I still couldn't resist bundling up and spending a few minutes by the pond.  So... needless to say, I am eagerly looking forward to Spring.

365 Week 3

The middle photo was taken on a day when I decided to clean out all the closets in the house. What a huge job that turned out to be!! Well during the middle of it all I hear my 3 year old yell out " I gotta pee." I turned around and there he was running to the bathroom with his pants pulled down. I'm so glad that I had a camera right next to me to catch this crazy moment in our life.
