I love a day that is restful.   It gives one time to reflect...

sniff out an unfamiliar scent...

Imagine what you would see from this viewpoint...

or this one...

and even finish a forgotten painting.

So glad you stopped by.

Hope you will share what you do with a  restful day.  Have a lovely week.

Hugs Debbie

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.   Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."  Matt. 11: 28-30 (NIV)

  3. Good morning to you Debbie, its been awhile since I've been visiting my favourite blogs, what a joy to read such simple words describing your great photos. I'm feeling very rested now. I'm not sure if you know but we have sold & now left our home in the heart of the country in France. We are in a lovely rented cottage for a few months about a 20/30 min drive to the coast. so different to where we lived before. shortly we will be taking a look around to buy a small cottage just for me & Mr France, something with just a small garden. loved your painting, I'm hoping to get back into painting again now I have the time.

  4. Such splendid relaxing views, especially the peek through to the water.
    Your painting is really charming and how nice that you were able to come back to it and finish it.
    Thank you for sharing the happiness :D)

  5. I love your painting, Debbie! I had to think, what I do with a restful day.... I think I always find something to do. Made me realise it is good to stop and enjoy sometimes! Thanks!

  6. Your landscape is so wonderful. I always enjoy the photos, thank you. And a perfect piece of scripture once again. You always find the right passage or quote. I think I'll reflect on it today while hiking. Thank you.

  7. Nice reminder to us all to slow down and take a day of rest. Your painting is beautiful!

  8. Lovely painting and most restful scenes! Could be the view from out my window too -- a good time for hibernation -- and rest!

  9. Lovely post! Glad you posted this beautiful painting, and thank you for the scripture - good reminder!

  10. Oh Deb, I love the painting and your walk. It looks restful, that is until the dogs drop and roll in stink. I'm glad I just have weenies to clean up. Two German Shepherds would be a task.

  11. Lovely painting
    The weather feels more like early spring that it does winter. I don't look forward to the snow that's surely going to fall.

  12. Beautiful photos and love the painting!

  13. A beautiful post. Perfect for today! Love the painting. Hugs! Bonnie

  14. I love the quote! It is one of my favorites. Lovely painting of the striking red house!! I can imagine the view from there too. Peaceful photos too. Enjoy your week!!!

  15. The grey and dull weather is really opposed to your colorful and beautiful painting , love it !

  16. Those photos and the painting are truly restful. Thanks for sharing. What is the animal in the distance? A dog?

  17. Your articles are always an inspiration to me, Thanks for everything

  18. Today i am tired because of my yesterday's laundry and your post is giving me perfectly what my senses needed friend!
    thank you for you magical words and soul comforting photos !
    i am glad i found your beautiful place .

  19. Hello Debbie,
    I love how you make a grey day look and sound so beautiful and yes restful. I spend my quiet days in much the same way as you, although I no longer have a dog, so I usually walk alone or sometimes with my husband. When not walking I love to read, catch up with friend's blogs and potter about the house and garden.
    Your painting is beautiful and I enjoyed the quote, thank you.

  20. Beautiful painting....I'm glad you are feeling a restful time.

  21. Hi Deborah, It is always so thrilling to find an old nest in a barren tree, nothing finer.
    I like your word for the new year in the post beneath, It is perfect, "HOPE".I too look forward to this year, and I would choose the same word myself.

  22. Hi Debbie,
    What a beautiful post. Your photographs are so peaceful. I am so glad you finished your forgotten painting. It is just wonderful.
    Thank you so much for coming over to visit and leaving such kind thoughts.

  23. Such a lovely post, Debbie, thank you.
