‘If we have no peace,

it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.’

~Mother Teresa

leaves When do you feel most at peace?

I feel peaceful at the end of the day

when Kaish and I are doing tuck in time

and we are able to thank Jesus for our day.

No matter how hard they are,

we are always able to find one thing

to be thankful for.

When I am thankful I am at peace.

P.S. Below is Kaishon’s idea of peace…

wrestling.

All day, every day!

Marla said...

I feel most peaceful at night when I'm laying in bed thinking about my many blessings.

Beautiful.

I love the picture of the dandelion seed. very cool beck.

Sarah said...

For some reason, this brought tears to my eyes! I love, love LOVE the dandelion picture!! I can see it on the front of a card with "Make a wish..." :) And Kaish looks hysterical with it behind his ear -- what a nut! You are so sweet and inspiring -- being able to be thankful, even after a hard day. We do that too at our house. I love that even after a hard day, my crazy little boy still wants me to snuggle with him at bedtime and say prayers. It's a nice ending to a stressful day :)

Jhon said...

Thank you :]
and I LOVE LOVE LOVE your pictures!!
I have always wanted to take some pictures of my cousins in a Radio Wagon and you Just inspired me to do it!
I also really like the one of the Dandelion in Black & White!
I would blow that up and Put it in my house!!!

Robyn said...

Beautiful photos, I love the one with the dandelion.

Lauren said...

Haha, boys will be boys! I love that first picture of the blooms on the tree. Beautiful. I'm most at piece when the weather outside is just right - not muggy, not humid, not too hot, not too cold, not too windy, 70 degrees - under a shade tree, reading a book, without wasps, bugs, and ants trying to eat you.

4 Lettre Words said...

What is it with boys and wrestling??? Sam wants to do it all day, everyday.

Lovely captures!!

Justine said...

Wow, these pictures were amazing! What did you do? Lay in the grass to get that pic of the dandelion? Geez, is there some contest you can enter that in? I love it!

Justine :o )

Busy Bee Suz said...

I love it. I love your idea of peace as well as Kaishon's.
My peace? I suppose early in the morning...a hot cup of coffee in my hand and the day ahead of me.
But really, some days, I just want to crawl back into bed and have some peace alone. :)

Alicia said...

I always enjoy your pictures. They're so big and vibrant!!

I feel the most peace after I read my bible!

Adrienne in Ohio said...

I love nightly tuck-in time as well. The prayers of children are so heart-felt, so honest. Their gratitude is genuine. I try to keep my prayers simple and true, just like that.

Beautiful post!

the monkeys' mama said...

love the flower! i love how he's looking at it out of the corner of his eyes. I love your photography.

<3

Adeena said...

Cool dandelion shots! I'm going to have to try some of those. ;)

Dawn said...

Beautiful photos!! What a lovely post. =)

jennykate77 said...

I LOVE red wagons! How do you capture such cool moments? Your pictures always amaze me. I think I'm most at peace when I'm doing the things you mentioned...tuck in time and bed time prayers...that is my most peaceful moment in any day. I'm also really at peace when I'm at my Granny's on a lazy Sunday afternoon...that feels really good and peaceful.

I'm going to try to find a picture to link up to Communal Global tomorrow.

Hope you had a great Monday!

jennykate77 said...

Could I link up my post from Friday?

Colleen said...

Your pictures are always so beautiful!!!! : )

Casey Freeland said...

I love the pics. A peaceful moment is when my mind is full of the things I want to think about and the things I'm forced to think about are far away.

Cinner said...

You know I love coming here, I always have a smile. I loved the photo with the dandelion flower, I think that is what he had by his ear. and of course typical boys idea of peace...wrestling....I like early mornings and late evenings when all is still. take care.

These Three Kings said...

I looove that quote by Mother Teresa.. Glad you always have thankful days :)

Erin said...

Boys will be boys! My boys have taken to wrestling with each other!
And I love that time of the day, the boys are soft, and gentle, and tired, and loving. And it reminds me no matter what, there is always something to be thankful for!

And I so love that pic of Kaish with the "puff ball" as my son calls them!

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

The first picture is gorgeous! You take great pictures!!

Nurse Nancy said...

Tuck in time is the best part of the day!

Anita Johnson said...

Such beautiful photos. I miss the prayer time with little boys, but I don't miss the wrestling. I remember one of my kids yelling from a tangled wrestling hold in the living room..."is dinner ready?"

Megan (Best of Fates) said...

I love the juxtaposition between the post about peace and the wrestling photos!

Angelia Sims said...

Gorgeous and peaceful.....I love green grass crowned with a blue, blue sky and white wispy clouds. And trees. Love trees. I guess nature makes me peaceful. Great post.

Erin said...

You gave me a feeling of peace just looking at your photos.
Becky you are a master of the camera.
I especially like the one of the boy in the wagon and the far away gaze. Great job.

Brooke said...

as always beautiful photos!

peace for me is that moment just before i have to get out of bed in the mornings, when Jay and I are still snuggled up.

Tezzie said...

Oooohh...those are all stunning!!! I loooove the black and white dandelion. I'll have to try to recreate that at some point, since I would love to have that on my wall!

A really wonderful post :D

My peaceful time is right now...just after the kids have been tucked in, and I get to come sit with my laptop on the couch for a while and visit wonderful people from all around the world!

Happy Tuesday :D

This Heavenly Life said...

How on earth have you grown suge GINORMOUS dandelions?! Seriously, that is huge, unless Kaish's head is tiny :)

Wonderful pictures today! I feel peaceful...when hubby is out entertaining the kids on the swingset at the end of a long day, while I'm alone in the house. Unless I can hear the kids tattling on me through the open window. That's not peaceful at all :)

(That happened to me here, by the way :) -- http://thisheavenlylife.blogspot.com/2010/05/sometimes-hes-right.html)

Angela said...

That is one huge dandelion!! Love your photos as always - have a beautiful day

Libby said...

Libby

Stacey said...

I have to agree with everyone else that your pictures are fabulous! Each time I visit you I'm just amazed at the eye you have. Not just that you take great pictures...you see things that others might not! Really - you have a gift.

Then of course, there's that gorgeous son of yours!

Serline said...

My son, Andre, could really use a wrestling partner. He definitely misses having a brother he can share with...

MarshaMarshaMarsha said...

beautiful sweet peace.

and even if you had the worsest day on earth, there is always one thing to be thankful for- Jesus Christ!

Allison @ Alli 'n Son said...
