We who live in quiet places...

“We who live in quiet places have the opportunity to become acqainted with ourselves, to think our own thoughts, and live our own lives. “
Laura Ingalls Wilder
.
Not that it’s really quiet.
Little girls are laughing, it’s the sound of the rain on the roof of the greenhouse.
A barking irish setter, running feet, an eight month old’s steady and merry talking. There’s singing, children singing, adults singing.
The sound of the mail dropping to the floor through the door.
Nursery rhymes, the stirring of a spoon in a cup of tea, the sound of sweeping on the tiles, the sound of the wind, the sound of talking.
Sound of splashing water, sound of scary trolls, of wood being chopped, dancing feet. Lovely sounds, homely sounds. Sounds of blessings.
.
Peace to all of you,

:D Sounds absolutely lovely. I wish I could read the comments to my left tehe! But alas.

Your pictures are wonderful. I quite often wish I lived in the countryside. But my heart pulses for the life of the city too. I think it is in the quiet places that God can speak to you and you can find who you are. Why else would church retreats so often be in the wilderness?

Praying you have a most wonderful day my dear!!

How lovely that looks! Like somewhere in a Jane Austen movie =)
I am soon (read; don't know when, but some day...) coming over to visit you and see for myself, but in the meanwhile, I love to see photos of the world my dearest sister lives in!

Thanks for the comments you left on my site.

I was surprised when I checked out your blog and saw that you were working in Ireland.How long are you there for?
