Come Sit With Me for Awhile

I've been away from this blog for awhile, mainly because there hasn't been time to write.  I compose blog posts and thoughts in my head on a regular basis and sometimes write them down in my journal.  But no one benefits UNLESS I put it here!

So, today, I'd like to share with you why I have the pictures and quote on the top of this page.  The two white rockers invite you to come sit with me on my front porch for while.  I love a good cup of tea but it is better shared with a friend or someone I love.  Let's listen to the birds sing together!  

The sound of the gently flowing waterfalls is so soothing to me.  And the wind in the trees reminds me of the One who created this beautiful world just for US.  And I absolutely love the birds.  I found this quote shortly after my first cochlear implant was activated, which fit perfectly with my "Dance with Sound."

Spring has arrived in Tennessee.  The birds are slowly returning to my feeders and I just love to hear their happy songs!  Last night I took time to relax on the front porch in my rocking chair with a glass of wine.  It was so peaceful and relaxing just listening to the birds and sounds of nature.  Made me realize that no matter how busy I get, I really need to just take some time to relax & rejuvenate, even if it is just for a few minutes.

Happy Spring to you from me!

And what if the bird is a buzzard???? LOL! Just kidding! Actually, I wished I was sitting there having tea and listening to the birds. That will have to be for another time but thanks for the inspiration! :)

I've seen variations of the two empty chairs in other pictures and paintings before. The heart-felt and sweet invitation to "come sit awhile and let's catch up" has always tugged at my soul strings. I am reminded that God wants us to come chat for awhile as well. I don't take enough time to sit and reflect. I don't take enough time to sit and chat with someone dear. I don't take enough time to sit and talk about my day with the One Who created it.

Thanks for making me think... and determine to find "2 chair time".
