Sunday Morning Coming Down


What better thing to do, on a brilliant Sunday morning, than spend quiet time outdoors, reading, writing, drinking coffee, praying? It's one of my favorite things about camping, the unhurried feeling that renews and refreshes both body and soul.


Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him.
Psalm 37:7

  5. Thanks for the inspiring words and such a beautiful photograph. I am grateful everyday for reaching retirement and having time for hubby and just being in the present.

  6. A blessed way to spend a Sunday Morning! Waiting on the Lord... a position we have been in many times. The resting part is sometimes the hard part for me.

    Thank you for sharing!

  8. Hi Dayle....Your morning sounded great. And you know what? By golly, I think you were right and I was wrong on my blog. We LOST an hour, not gained! Ha! Good copy editing! Take care, dear Dayle, and have fun on Monday. Susan

    1. But, on second thought, dear Susan ... we did gain an hour of daylight, so ... we were both correct. :)

  10. I have been waiting for it to be light enough at 6am to sit out and enjoy the sunrise. Just when it was close - darned daylight savings time. Now I sit here at 7am and it is still very dark. Patience . . .

    Are you still in Tampa or heading south?

    1. I'm not a fan of Daylight Saving Time for many reasons, that being one of them. I wish the powers that be would just leave it alone. Arizona keeps the same time all year, as does Hawaii.

      Yes, on Tampa. We will be in this area for awhile. Not sure of the exact time frame. The Man keeps me udpated whenever I ask. HA!

    1. It's my roadmap for life, Tammy. The inside is all written in and underlined ... I'm sure you know the feeling. What would we do with the written Word?

  12. Lovely....surrounded by all of God's beautiful creations!

    1. Yes, Terri. Avid RVers/campers since early marriage years. The Man retired in 2008 and we get to do a lot more of it these days. It makes for wonderful memories.

  14. Your Sunday morning sounded lovely, Dayle. A time for thought and reflection is so important. That the weather allowed you to do it outside is a bonus.
    Thank you for linking to Sunlit Sunday this week.

  15. You know what made me smile the most? The worn, used Bible in that picture. Ahhhh.....

  16. rest and wait ~ aahh, that is a good word from our Lord ~ and I am glad you are having a relaxed time camping, Dayle! I know my days are so much better when I have a quiet time to wait for Him to reveal more of HImself.

  17. That certainly sounds like a wonderful way to spend any morning.

  18. Ah, just sharing such a respite of a thought blesses me with hopes of such a contemplative moment in my future this year . . .

    Be blessed, Dayle!
    Joy!

  19. Well, it has taken me a while, but I'm finally caught up on The Great Cloud Nine Adventure. I feel like a little pest running along behind after the motor home screaming, "Wait for me! Wait for me!"

    Sad image, isn't it?

    I'm back to stalking and peeking and enjoying now, at least for a day or two before life tugs me away again. I loved the post about your love for Destin, big hair and all. Personally, I think you're a good artist. I can't draw a circle without a plate to trace. As for the sweet things? We're total soul sisters there. My love nest would be renamed Cloud Ten by journey's end.

  20. I always thought that I would NOT enjoy RV-ing, but catching up on your experiences are certainly making me re-think that. Love the Gateway Arch mug (we're just 20-30 minutes from the Arch) ... and especially love the well-loved Bible.

    1. RVing may not be for everyone but I think everyone should try it at least once if possible. I was a skeptic too. You might enjoy my post about our camping evolution, found on my sidebar.
