It is a gray, overcast day, dreary and devoid of color. The beauty of autumn fades so fast. I am looking forward to the snow. The scenery needs some brightness and cleanliness added to its drab blanket.
I'm in slow motion today. Not sure if its the weather or lack of sleep, maybe a combination of both.
I have two down with sickness, quarantined to their bedroom. And school has been put on hold for the day. Homemade chicken soup and quiet time seems more important right now.
I've lit some candles
and have praise and worship music playing softly in the background. I'm going to focus on taking care of my sick boys and thanking the Lord for the blessings He has given me. Even the bare trees and sullen sky.
Because every now and then I have a bit of color and activity flitting to my back deck to remind me of God's beautiful creation.
