A quiet moment....

Good morning.
It's crisp, clear, and very cold here at the old lakehouse.
It's one of those quiet times of the day when you have time to just sit, and reflect.
Experiencing those last few days of 2011.
Thinking over the events of the past year.
Thanking God for the blessings and provisions of each and every moment.

Being grateful for HIS wisdom.
Knowing I must trust that HE is in control.
HE sees the whole picture, and has a plan for my life.
 Do you ever do that? Take a moment, and just breath in HIS presence?
I think I will go sit in my big, old, squishy chair and just bask in HIS glory.
Happy New Year!


  1. He sees the whole picture~~~that is so true. I find my most quiet time is when I lie down to sleep at night and reflect over the day, the week, my life. Some heavy duty thinking, but mostly counting my blessings. I have had so many and I am so grateful.

    I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, Debbie. Did you see your kids and grandchildren?

    Wishing you a Happy New Year, sweet friend!


  2. Hello Debbie...oh I agree it's so important to take time to reflect and be thankful...hope you have a wonderful New Year ! Gail x

  3. Its my favorite place to be and I do it often. There is nothing like the peace of his arms around you.

  4. Great idea, Deb! My visiting family just left for three days in Fort Meyers, coming back on December 31 for a New Years party...a lovely break for sitting back, reflecting and talking things over with God. :)
    Happy meditating!

  5. Yes, I do that a lot! Give us an update on how you are doing. Or drop me a line!

  6. I don't count my blessings enough. I need to make that more of a priority in my life.

  7. I have many times over this year and years past! We all need to do this more and more! Happy New Year Debbie!! May 2012 be your best year ever!!

  8. Happy New Year to you, too, Debbie! Your home is looking just so pretty. And a big congrats on your new grandbaby! I didn't realize that another was on the way:)

  9. Absolutely... couldn't survive with out those moments - they keep me grounded and (sorta of) sane.

    Wishing you the most joyous of things for 2012 !
