No Little House on the Prairie


Hello!

Today I'm sending you a message of peace.

May this day be filled with all good things for you and for your loved ones, too.

Just set aside the world with all its complex problems, sit down, look around you and indulge in a few moments of tranquility.


When I do that----slow things down----I feel so much better.


The above photograph touched my gypsy soul.  

Last Sunday, on a drive into the countryside, I came across this meadow.


Purple and yellow flowers, interspersed with a few white, perky daisies,  dotted the land closest to the roadside.

 What a splendid real live "painting" they made.



For as far as the human eye could see, there was not a single house. 

It made a person feel so small, so insignificant in the general scheme of things.


Today, may you take a moment or two, stop and just enjoy the pleasure of being alive. 

HOW DO YOU FIND TRANQUILITY?

You know when I really want to find peace - I go to my room - alone - and PRAY! Praying is the only thing that gives me true peace. Although I do love talking to friends too. sandie

I go into my bedroom, sit in my lovely green chair, put my feet up and read..sometimes a book, sometimes my kindle, sometimes my daily prayer pages. It gives me silence after a day filled with children's voices. Love it. Pretty pictures Susan of the meadow.

Do you ever wonder if your blogs are read or move anyone?
I want to tell you that your post was exactly what I needed to hear this morning. I will just breathe. I can't thank you enough. My tranquility also comes from nature. You are special and again....thank-you.

VEry nice post with lovely pictures. Title was misleading to me for just a minute as this rise looks just like the one behind the spot where Laura lived in Wisconsin...On the Banks of Plum Creek. I love prairie.

Wide open spaces! And wildflowers. Beautiful! We don't see either of those around here. My tranquility comes when I don't have to go rushing out the door every day. With the summer holiday here, I shall be filled with peace each and every day. :) Best wishes, Tammy

Anyone can give someone a bouquet of flowers. But what you are showing here is God's extravagance! and only He can pull this one off!
Beautiful, beautiful.
I look at things like this, or just in my back yard, and the worship arises. It fills me with joy and wonder every time.

Mostly I find tranquility by going outside in nature. If I can't get a walk in, I like to star at the trees, the sky, the flowers, the birds...from my window.

Susan, your photo is a glimpse of serenity. My favorite time of day is evening, I love to sit outside or take a drive.

Beautiful and inspiring post as usual. I am happy that I have the ability to just 'switch' off when needed and completely chillax. Often when I come home from work I just stay in silence for a while before I do anything. I think it's important to just take some time to be quiet every now and then.
Have a lovely day!
Big hugs
