distractions...

A peek at some Christmas memory books I am working on...

The paper is from Cosmo Cricket...

I love the cheery prints and sentiments...

Fresh, fun, colors...


Does your life ever get so full of distractions that you neglect what's truly important? I know mine sure does. As my life gets fuller, my quiet time seems to get emptier. As my quiet time gets emptier, the less I have to give to the ones I love.

I came into my craft room this morning ready to get started with my devotions and quiet time and the very room I created for my own seemed to pull me in every direction that was not quiet. Don't get me wrong, I love being in my room but between the unfinished projects, the bookshelves full of books and the ideas in my head, it's hard to settle my thoughts.

So I am in search of a new spot meant only for my devotions. Nothing around to distract me...nothing calling me that needs to be done...a place to pray for friends...a place to give thanks...a place to hear His still small voice.

If I have missed an opportunity to be there for you...or hear you cry out...or just listen...I am sorry. I will try to do better. You know I love you all.

Blessings,
Patty

What about your beautiful garden? A nice cup of tea...what could be more peaceful than that?
