Peaceful Time~

This past Friday we drove to a college that my oldest daughter may attend in the Fall. They allowed us to stay in their guest house over night. It was the children and I. We had a great time. Such peace....

It was an old antique house.... we kept finding extra rooms! Twelve rooms in all...

This is part of the living room~

This is the den. This was Dakota's favorite room. I would find him in there reading. He said it was awesome... so peaceful.

This was the LONG hallway. It was so neat. The children played hide/seek. We played Narnia. We all loved it. Everyone talked about how peaceful and quiet it was. I had alone time with three of my children. Mandi and I sat on the couch and talked for a long time... just about everything. Dakota and I talked for a long time in the den. Alyssa and I went to the store to pick up a couple things and we talked together. God is so good. Often it isn't peaceful here at home. I want it to be.... but sometimes life is hard and so I cry out to the Lord to give me grace. This was a nice break away from the daily stuff......

This is the girls room. They loved it.

This is the room I stayed in. The Lord woke me at 3am and I couldn't sleep. It was such a neat time in the word. He gave me Rom. 15:13 & Phillippians 1:12.

Thank you for letting me share.

May God give you His peace & joy~
