A Little Bit of Down Time

I am taking a little bit of down time.  There has been so much emotional noise in my life this summer. Some of it I made myself  but most if it is the world and it’s loudness. I just  am in a place where I want to be quiet and hear God’s Still small voice. No horrific news stories, no who’s right or wrong, no fighting. Just a quiet cup of tea. Just a quiet art journal session. Just a quiet moment with my eyes closed to ponder all I have to be grateful for.  Just a quiet few minutes to sit next to my daughter or encourage my son or drink a cup of coffee with my mom. I put my Facebook away for a while. I turned off the TV to crime shows and news programs.  I quit answering the phone when I know it’s drama calling.  blog june2013 005

IN REALITY: I live with 4 teenagers, a 20-year-old, a nine-year old( all out of school)  3 dogs, 3 cats, 14 guineas, 2 cows, 2 horses. a donkey. ducks, chickens, 2 goats, Turkeys and the loudest Cowboy on the planet.  There is a lot of puberty. Quiet is rough around here.

 But I’m going for it anyway.

     I am over stimulated, over materialized and over stuffed. I need a little time to clear out the closets, discard the unnecessary and  pray through the unanswered. I need to lie down in peace, sit in the quiet and hope without fear.  I just need a break.    Time for a long walk in the country, a cup of tea  and a little time in my art journal…..

  1. I didn’t know all the background about Amanda but I can sure relate to some of it. My oldest had a lot of issues and we went through lots and lots with him. Now, I have Ron… I totally understand the “I need a break” sentiments. I love this: I need to lie down in peace, sit in the quiet and hope without fear. I just need a break.

    That sums it up quite nicey

  2. I put in a comment but not sure where it went… I’ll paraphrase in case it shows up.

    I like this: I need to lie down in peace, sit in the quiet and hope without fear. I just need a break.

    That sums it up quite nicely.
