in quietness and rest is my salvation

Who am I when I'm all alone?

I get to find out today! A dear friend has taken all 5 of my children for the entire day. This is the first time since we moved that I have the house all to myself (besides the dogs anyway).

What will I do with this gift?

Sleep is definately in the picture.
I'm thinking the 4 baskets of laundry that need folding can wait...
No meals to make except for me, not even supper cause my honey and I are going to a birthday party (also without children).
Quilting will take place or at least some kind of playing with fabric...
I don't think I'll write the fresh flower column just yet, perhaps God has a special something that will bloom in the midst of this day...

Right now I'm going to pour myself another cup of tea and curl up with my journal and Bible and enjoy the morning sun...I'll get dressed later...

Update on this quiet day....

I had a wonderful morning sitting my Saviour's feet, writing a poem, reading the word and journalling.
Then I stayed there and enjoyed a quiet rest...
followed by a quiet bath with worship music playing as I relaxed...
I envisioned a dance that I would love to do with my husband to a worship song.....
I got dressed finally....
Found out my dogs are really good at protecting our property as I saw a stranger come to our front door, the inside dog started barking his head off, the guy tried to go to the back, outside dog took up the tune and that fellow just had to leave. NOTE - I wasn't trying to be rude I'd jsut stepped out of the tub and was not about to answer the door in what I had on....
made lunch
read
read blogs.....I like quiet.......
