"Q" is for Quiet

I am sharing the letter "Q" today for Alphabe Thursday! Please stop by Ms. Jenny and all the participates of this weekly fun! I need some quiet. Peace and quiet! I have no qualms that you might think I am complaining.  I'm not! I just need a shoulder to lean on, an ear to listen. The work place is a chaotic, busy place and lately I have been getting physically ill from all the burdens of the job. What we need is another full time person and I need some time at this lovely cottage painted here in a Thomas Kinkade artwork! Quiet and quaint It is a winning combination.
I need a lot of quiet these days! Our two oldest kids, Noelle and Jeremy received handsome bonuses at their job today! They treated us to a really nice dinner. I even had a glass a wine! It was wonderful and I wasn't queasy! Just happy to be in a nice easy place for an hour or two!

This sweet quote says it all!  I hope you will pray for my phamily this week. Nick arrives home for Spring break tomorrow. He and his former room mate Darragh will fly in from OKC tomorrow afternoon.  We will pick them up and then take them early Friday morning to meet a young man who run on the track and field team for Western, the college they are looking at. He is picking up his girlfriend and they will drive to Gunnison. It is in the mountains so I ask that you pray that God will guide this young man and they will arrive safely at their destination. Saturday the coach will drive the guys back to Denver with her family. I pray for safe journeys all around. Darragh will fly back to Kansas on Sunday and we will have Nick for a whole week! We are tickled to have him home.

"But let it be the hidden person of the heart , with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet  spirit, which is precious in the sight of God." 1 Peter 3:4

Thank you for stopping by and please join the Alphabe Thursday crowd for fun and encouragement and lots of terrific, creative hearts!

you need to find that quiet time for the sake of your sanity, it sounds like. Ten minutes alone with that morning coffee?

Anne,

I know exactly what you mean about the chaos and stress of your job making you ill....I have been there, believe me....

Love the Thomas Kinkade painting!! I am a huge fan of him and it is so sad that he passed away....

You and your family will be in my thoughts and in my prayers...

Hugs,
Debbie

I hope Nick was safe and had a good trip. My nephew went to Western and then was an assistant wresting coach there.
Quiet can be such a luxurious thing! I hope your got some!

Sending you quiet wishes for peace and joy.
