Taking Time...

to just breath...

 to feel the sun on my face...





 the breeze through my hair...






all in my own backyard.


Today is a gift.
I hope you take the time.

There's something about the sun lighting up those grass tips, you can't help but stop and stare.

Such pretty pictures Jill - your garden must be looking rather lovely.
I hope you enjoyed your time in the sun :))

Jeanne said...

Lovely grasses. I too am taking the time. Just came in. Finally stopped raining and the temp is about 70. Nice!

Walking on Sunshine said...

I'm learning! We have a few of these grasses around our back porch and the other day the sun was causing them to create a shadow on our storage shed and it looked like hands praising the Lord. I found the image so amazing, especially when the wind would blow it looked like the "hands" were waving their praises. I need to try and get a photo! Enjoy your day.

Bee Lady said...

I just sat and read your last few posts. I'm behind. I cannot seem to get caught up, but I will tell you that you have calmed my spirit just by reading all you have written. Gosh Jill, your blog is great. Suddenly it is just what I need. So true about what you say will affect someone the rest of their life. And those pumpkins are adorable. I made some last year out of wool and I have some material ready to go for some big ones, if I just get the time to create. Thanks again, wonderful posts.

I literally stop and smell the roses when I go for a walk at a nearby park. They won't last long, but they smell so sweet now!

I've taken time to visit and comment on blogs today, it beats being out in the cold wet weather!! I guess there is one good thing from being trapped inside today! It is a gift to be able to visit with creative bloggers like you!!

Jill,
It's so nice to take time for the simple pleasures. Sometimes we forget to do this. Thank you for the gentle reminder. These backyard photos are very peaceful.
