Last night, while lying awake reading
I started thinking about how
much I love nights, especially Spring and Summer
nights in the South...
I don't know exactly why, but I just love them...maybe
it's the quiet all around and hearing the insects
outside while I'm laying in bed reading, which gives a
strange comfort, or if it's the soothing sound of raindrops
hitting the roof during the nighttime Spring showers
we have gotten recently.
Or it might even just be the peacefulness. I love
the peaceful feeling of living towards
the country, getting a nighttime snack and staring out the back
window at the trees at night...
hearing the crickets,
looking at the moon.
I hope to someday live more out in the country
under the stars with nothing at all around so I can
sit on the back porch at night and have this view!
This is what it looks like in parts of the South where I have
taken roadtrips through and I love it so much.
What would be truly amazing is to sit out on your porch
at night if you lived next to a creek or river, just
taking in the trickling sounds and the peacefulness
of the water.
Mostly I just love nights here because of the quiet, the
feeling in the air, the night skies, and the fact
that everything feels free... like there isn't a care in the
world, like you can just think more clearly...
as a night owl,
some things I love to do on warm, lovely
read a good book,
sew or do crafts,
look through old photographs,
talk with someone about life and hopes
look at the moon,
ponder and think about the day,
talk to God.
I love the nighttime and the beauty and serenity
it gives in so many ways...
Sweet dreams, ponderings, and looking at the
moon tonight and every night!
Have a Blessed Day
