Slowing Down

Today, I am linking up with Michelle DeRusha and slowing down for a Graceful Summer.

I am using my camera phone and documenting how I am trying to slow down and enjoy the moments as God gives them.

Just yesterday I sat pulling weeds from our front walkway in the early morning. All I could hear was the babbling of the brook near our home and birds chirping and singing.

Peacefulness. GRACE-FULNESS.

If you have read my blog for very long you know that I never planted anything at the last house we occupied. For various reasons.

I was thrilled to receive two HUGE pots for container gardens and to have a new friend who loves to plant flowers. Yay!

I am enjoying the blooms very much.

I am slowing down to toss the ball with our dog who LIVES to chase a ball.

We’ve been eating casual meals on the deck, breakfast, lunch, the occasional dinner.

Breathing in deep and exhaling slowly.

Watching a sunset now and then.

Watching the flowers bloom.

How are you slowing this summer?

Have any big plans?
