Creating Peace at Home

Willow Park Lake

Things have been so stressful here lately.  I need to take a day off from my worries!

So tomorrow will be a better day.

I will have hot tea in the morning. I will sit by the window and read before the family wakes up. Then I will sweep the kitchen floor and start some laundry.

I will spend some time outside on the front porch.  I will watch the children play.

Then I will hang some towels on the back clothesline.  I will enjoy summer breezes and the warmth of fresh air.

I will play board games with the children in the afternoon. We will stay at home and pass the time with pleasant tasks.

Soon the storm clouds will go away. Soon my worries will fade. And before some new ones appear, I will have had a long enough break, so I am stronger for next time.

I'm sorry to hear about your stress, but so appreciative of your honesty and transparency. What a lovely idea to make a "To Do" list of the things that bring you pleasure. The Lord is merciful to only give us that which we can handle.

That sounds like a really good plan. I do hope things will be better in the morning.

Gods mercies are new every day.

I am stopping by from the scavenger hunt. I found yours.

Wishing you a wonderful stress free day. When I am stressed I sometimes just listen to soft music and close my eyes for a few moments of time. Reading also takes my mind a way from the stresses of life. Some of things are hard to do with children; but give them a quiet time while you rest.
Blessings to you!
