"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time."

Vanessa stopped by my blog recently and sent me an email that said she found it inspiring. So she used her fantastic graphic design talents and created this darling little award for me:
Vanessa, this is one of the sweetest things I have ever been given. Thank you so very much for this darling little angel fairy baby with her little quill, ink , and book. I just love her! I won't keep this little darling to myself, but will pass her on at a later time. Thanks ladies and blessings be multiplied to you for your kindness.
Now, to tell you where I am going.....
I am going to walk barefoot in the dew damp morning grass,
to watch the wild morning glories bloom.
I am going to sip ice tea while sitting on my deck,
watching Grace, a deer, eat mimosa blossoms.
I am going to slip beneath sun dried sheets,
and dream sweet dreams.
I am going to float on my back in the pool,
while dragonflies dance against the big blue sky.
I am going to dip my toes in the pollywog's pond,
and cheer them on as they grow their little legs.
I am going to walk in the deep shade of the cool woods,
and day dream.
I am going to take my camera on a field trip, just she and I,
to view all the wonders God has made.
I am going to sit under the stars on a quilt,
and watch the fireflies blink.
I am going to recline on the swing,
and read a book.
I am going to eat ice cold watermelon while laughing,
juice dripping down my chin.
I am going to marvel at sunrise,
and gasp at the glory of sunset.
I am going to enjoy summer!
I am going to take
a blog break!
I just wanted to let you know that I will be on an extended blog break. I recently visited with a very good blog friend and told her I am feeling blog pressure not blog pleasure. She suggested a break, I agree. I wish to take some time to just be and not have to do if that makes any sense. I cannot say how long I will be gone.
While I am on break, I will be thinking of you and of this blog. Actually, I'll be giving the blog matter some prayer. I think my blog has lost its voice and I must find it again. I hope each of you take some time to just be.
I'm off for refreshing, refueling, and infilling!
Blessings to you all,
P.S. You may not miss me at all, I have a few posts scheduled if you care to pop in.
