How is it that just reading through your lists makes me feel more peaceful?

I agree with Magda - this is something I need to work on!

I'm new to blogging and discovered your blog almost right away. I love the feel of it and your pictures make it so dear. Where do you get your pictures such as this one with the little child reading?

I'd love it if you visited my blog. www.scatteringagates.blogspot.com

Happy Presentation of the Lord (loved your shelf).

We were at St.John the Forerunner monastery in Goldendale, WA over the weekend and purchased the book "The Gurues, the Young Man, and Elder Paisios". The nuns said they it is excellent and that everyone who comes to the monastery has been buying it. I told them that anything with the words "Elder Paisios" in the title would probably sell quickly in the Orthodox world! DH,though, has grabbed the book before me, so I have to patiently wait for him to finish it before it is my turn:)

I love reading your goals. It is inspiring and encouraging. My goal for the year is to become more purposeful and organized. Hopefully developing habits that become ritual.

Thanks for your blog link, Holly! I will check it out:)

I find many of my pictures through google images. Most of the work is done by Jessie Wilcox Smith or Waterhouse... two of my favorite artists.
