For the past several years, during summer mornings, you could find me sitting in the swing on the deck. I would take a few minutes to read my devotions, sketch a little or eat breakfast. It was the way I liked to start each day. Not so much this year though. I haven't been home enough, or I was too busy, it was too hot, etc, etc. The past month was worse than ever.
When I woke up this morning the weather was perfect and the sun was shining just right. I grabbed my sketchbook and headed out for a little quiet time. I'm so grateful for those special moments.
