A Day of Loveliness
If you were to give yourself a Day of Loveliness,
what would you include?
I would begin, by walking in the garden with a lovely cup of coffee with cream. The soft – cool breezes, the song of the birds lift my spirits – I give thanks to God.
I love the indulgence of a bubble bath. There’s nothing more serene than to spend a few moments, soft music in the background, beeswax candles giving the only light –
serene moments to contemplate those things that are lovely.
I love to bring flowers into my home – to meld the beauty of the garden with the atmosphere of the home. Whether I pick flowers from the garden or bring them home from the market – flowers in the room add a sense of loveliness and joy.
I would visit friends or family – to enjoy a lovely lunch, convivial conversation and a lot of laughter.
I would enjoy a lovely cup of tea in the afternoon with a good book. I have been blessed by another intriguing book from Laura Childs, Scones and Bones. I have enjoyed spending time with the wonderful characters she’s created.
I would treasure the moments I spend sharing thoughts, events and memories with my husband in the evening.
I would begin and end my day thanking God for his many blessings and wonder in awe of His love to us all.
