This week marks the observation
of my first entire year of "early retirement".
Much like the Fernleaf Dill of The Herb Garden
On Crooked Creektt, I've come 'full circle'.
Like many new retirees,
I had a full 'wish list' that I wanted to complete within this year.
"Mr. Ed" recently helped to check one of those 'to do's' off my list.
A new Garden Gate
to camouflage his 'over~size' garden necessities.
He did an amazing job!!!!
For the most part,
even in retirement, I'm an early morning riser.
Morning is my special time of the day.
I adore its freshness.
While the coffee brews, I begin my day in devotional reading.
Then Scripture reading. . .
and a time for reflection.
Filled with His goodness,
I embrace my daily prayer time
and wait to hear His voice for guidance for the day.
If I'm patient,
He provides the direction I need for the day.
Although I may not fully grasp the majesty of His plan. . .
in His time,
He enlightens me along my way.
Beginning as a mere glimpse of where my energies need to focus. . .
throughout the day His meaning becomes 'crystal clear'!
I'm learning more and more, with each retirement day,
to trust him to guide my path
as I meander through the journey of life On Crooked Creektt.
I am renewed and refreshed.
Early Morning Garden. . .
Until next time. . .
