My random thoughts this weekend have narrowed down to this: Routines have their place. Structure provides stability. But, I’m over rigidity.
I would have missed watching the timber behind my house come alive this morning if I had been on my normal routine.
None of us should be so self-important that we overlook what God is putting right in front of us. Is it appreciation for something? Someone? A simple need we can fill? Time for family and friends? Can we stop and look outward?
Maybe take a little time to reflect.
Are we caught up in the right actions but missing the important?
Today I hope you enjoy what you are doing, friends.
Beautiful photos – and some good advice!
Thanks, Dianna. I am looking forward to catching up with your and Motor Man’s activities today! 😉

Good morning, Merri. I am sorry to hear you had a hard day. Your positive attitude and God wins, tho! I often have post ideas but don’t post if I don’t have pics to go with. Maybe I shouldn’t be so rigid about that? Take care and thank you so much for your kind, encouraging words.
Love the view from the window is laying in!! Taking a few minutes in the day to take a deep breath and be in the moment is necessary. I guess the old saying “stop and smell the roses” is always valid. I enjoy your posts, pictures and reflections tremendously. Your new house and views are lovely!
Smelling the roses is definitely valid. Just check for bees, first. 😉
I think it’s good to appreciate the little things … and I definitely appreciate your kind comment; which is a big thing! 🙂
So glad to see you back my friend. 😊
I’m with you on reflection and appreciation of God’s wonders.
