Resting Place in the Little Forest


Overnight, yesterday and today, we got some snow again. Needless to say, I can't rest on our bench right now!! But when it is warm and dry I often sit on this bench and pray. It is very quiet here, you only hear the birds or the barking of neighbor dogs farther off. Very peaceful.
Die letzten zwei Naechte bekamen wir wieder Schnee. Von daher kann ich mich also zur Zeit auf unserer Bank nicht ausruhen! Aber wenn es warm u trocken ist, dann sitze ich oft hier und bete. Es ist dann immer ganz still, man hoert nur die Voegel oder etwas weiter weg die Nachbarhunde bellen. Sehr friedlich.

Da ist es bei Euch ja doch wieder Winter geworden... hier brauche ich es jetzt eigentlich nicht mehr!
Die Bank sieht auch so aus, als könnte man sich dort gut ausruhen und auch seine innere Ruhe finden.
Wäre schön, wenn es mal mit einem Treffen klappen würde, ich würde mich freuen.
Einen schönen Tag noch, liebe Grüße, Monika

Very good the photograph.
Also good the comment in post.
In Greece we want the snow as much as it throws.

That isn't a little house. I live in one room and put a light foot print on the planet because I'm concerned about saving it. I believe it talks about that in your bible.

Da ist aber wirklich wieder einiges an Schnee gefallen!
Ich hätte auch mal Lust im Schnee zu spazieren, aber ob das hier noch was wird...??!! Eher nicht schätze ich.

Gudl, Marie gave me the "You Make My Day" award... and I'm passing it on to YOU! You have made my day, so many times. With your comments, and with your lovely photos.

Sitting in the quiet. That sounds nice. Soon it will be warm again and you will be sitting on your bench listening to the bird sing and watching squirrels run to and fro. Yes, it does sound peaceful.

When the weather gets warm, maybe I will go down to the park and watch the waves crash on the rocks. That is peaceful too.
