I'm sitting here in the very middle of the night feeling the serenity of my house. Tomorrow, or rather today~~~my boys arrive home from camp and it will be dirty clothes and stories and packing up for college all in the same evening! So for now, even though I should be sleeping, I'm soaking in the serenity that being alone and creating never fails to bring to me.
My card for the sketch challenge over on SCS is filled with all the visuals that come to mind when I think on serenity. Water, sky, and land in the country. I've enjoyed some simply amazing sunsets recently where the golden light of the setting sun shines through the clouds and you can almost see heaven. I have a small water feature out my front kitchen window that catches the sky reflected every now and then...and that takes my breath away! Everywhere I turn is an opportunity to bathe my senses in beauty...a salve for whatever lies ahead!
I know this week is going to bring tears as we take our oldest son back to university and away from us...but I am sure he's seeing those same skies and waters and gathering serenity for his weeks ahead. How about you? Have you paused lately and seen a masterpiece?
