Filling My Pond

For those of you who are interested, the big night for my friend went very well and I had a blast. I had as much fun getting ready to go as going because I felt like myself. I felt pretty and proud to be sitting with my friend in a huge ballroom full of muckety mucks and being comfortable in my skin. So comfortable that my shy friend wanted me to sit next to him for comfort an solace when he was the one being honored for his enormous contributions to the community. Pretty cool.

I have spent time on myself and with myself. My pond was empty for many reasons and I'm filling it back up, my way. I don't care what other people think about how I'm doing it. It just doesn't matter. One thing that will make me crazy in a hurry is listening to too many people's opinions about what I should or should not be doing. The more quiet I become, the more clearly I can hear God.
It seems to be working.

Speaking of filling my pond here's some pictures from my morning walk. Enjoy! I sure did!

As cold as it is, your pond should be froze full. Ha, ha! I am so glad you had a good time. Great pics. We drove out to Amish country last weekend and I though of you. Remember when we rode out there?

I loved what you said:

"The more quiet I become, the more clearly I can hear God."

I do like the idea of filling my pond up, my way. Wonderful way to put it actually.

You sound wonderful and oh what a gift to be comfortable in our own skin!

I especially liked the thought ... the quieter we are, the better we hear God.
