Some Peace on a Rainy Fall Day

   Well it's fall here in South of the Middle of Nowhere. We have had some really beautiful days with beautiful skies, but today...well, it's one of those gray, rainy, curl up in front of the fireplace kinda days. I kind of like it though. I didn't get called into work today, so I get to be home with my kids and have my pot of coffee on all day.
   I needed this! I have been feeling a bit overwhelmed lately, and have been just plain too busy. My body mind and soul have been letting me know enough is enough, but isn't it amazing how we just keep pushing through?
   Not today though, I will allow myself to enjoy and recoup...sit by the window and watch the rain drops gently hit the water streaked glass, help my kids with their schoolwork, read some uplifting scripture, and post a few pictures of my favorite fall scenes. I am thankful for today, and am so glad you stopped by and hope you can enjoy a peaceful moment with me for a bit...you are welcome to stay as long as you like...I'm not going anywhere :)






























































































Wishing you many warm blessings,


Allison

What beautiful pictures. We don't really get a fall here and so this was a nice bit of fall.

Visiting from Vboks Christian Mom's blog hop.

Your pictures are breathtaking, Allison. I love the rainy, curl up and take it easy days, too, but that means we don't get to see much of one another because of all the soccer practice cancellations! Maybe when the game goes indoor we can visit again. In the meantime, thanks for sharing your gift with us!

Your photos are so beautiful. I love the first one. Your music playlist is fabulous. I have had it open browsing around online. Gorgeous songs!
Have a fabulous day.

All your photos are marvelous and a pleasure to view, and it is amazing how varied a rising or a setting sun can appear from day-to-day.
