The Best of 2009- December 8

I'm doing The Best of 2009 Blog Challenge by Gwen Bell.


December 8
Moment of Peace
An hour or a day or a week of solitude.
What was the quality of your breath? The state of your mind? How did you get there?


Seriously?
A week of solitude?
I honestly can't imagine that.


Thankfully I have had many moments of peace this year, but can't think of one that stands out above the others.

I've had some super peaceful and relaxing moments.
I've had moments of peace while getting a massage, while visiting my inlaws (for some reason I seriously relax when I am there), while visiting my sweet friend Betty's country house, while visiting my sweet friend Gina, and manywhile just sitting in silence with God's word and listening to Him.

It's funny but when I was younger I HATED solitude. I absolutely never wanted to be alone and certainly never wanted it to be quiet. But as I've aged, that has changed. I truly relish and savor those quiet, still moments and pray I have many more in 2009.

  1. You've had peace while visiting me? Are you KIDDING? We were on the go or laughing so much... don't know what's peaceful about that.

    We'll be lazy this next time... I promise. :o)
