I bought this mirror at a yard sale a few weeks ago, and I haven’t had a chance to paint it yet or find a place for it to hang.  In the meantime, our dog Snoopy has found that she loves to lay right in front of it…….a lot!

I think she feels like she is not alone when she is here.  It is so cute.

Do you have a special place that brings you comfort?

I know mine is definitely NOT in front of a mirror?

Jesus went to the garden to be alone and spend time with God.

Where do you go?

Lately, I’ve had to be squeeze in early morning time and bedtime.  I also like to listen to CDs on the trip from work to home and home to work.  I’m not going to try to pretend, though, that I don’t miss my longer quiet times that I enjoyed on days when I wasn’t subbing.when I wasn’t working full time.

I’m still trying to find a balance.

Snoopy has found her special place and time.

I’m still searching.  How about you?

Have a wonderful day!

Oh, and I woke up this morning thinking about the words I wrote about casting all my cares on my Heavenly Father, and I just wanted to be sure everyone knew that I am thankful for an earthly father who has shown me so much love and care too.  When I was writing about all the things I was thankful NOT to find when I reached out to God, I was thinking about how I often react when my kids need me…….parenting is not always easy. 🙂  I’m thankful that our Heavenly Father is a perfect Father in every way. 

Trying to be more like Him,
