Incomplete thoughts

My random thoughts this weekend have narrowed down to this: Routines have their place.  Structure provides stability.  But, I’m over rigidity.Kitchen view

I would have missed watching the timber behind my house come alive this morning if I had been on my normal routine.  Waking up

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?BubblesBench

Maybe take a little time to reflect.BubblesKitchen

Are we caught up in the right actions but missing the important?Autumn

Today I hope you enjoy what you are doing, friends.

      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!
