Due to technical difficulties, I was unable to add posts for a few weeks. My heart was missing the connections with all my faithful readers. You may not post comments, but I know you’re there!
My soul was saying “be still and accept.” Acceptance that for now I was not to be frustrated with my broken blog and I was to breathe and accept that in time it would be up and running again.
And with acceptance, I could focus on the projects at hand; such as searching for furniture, painting furniture, repainting furniture, hanging window coverings, taking them down because they didn’t work for me and all the other things that go into making the Cottage on Greene a home.
I could spent the time fretting over those things I can’t control or I could let it go and enjoy the fall before it was gone. Fall is my favorite season to be outdoors.
And outdoors I was; for a day of hiking and picture taking in the mountains.
You can tell by the smiles on these three, I wasn’t the only one that needed to “be still and accept.”
While the four of us were enjoying the beauty of the day, I was reminded of the prayer that will always bring me back to “be still and accept” , whatever it is.
The Serenity Prayer by Reinhold Niebuhr
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,and the wisdom to know the difference.
