For Carin...

Spending lots more time here lately. Sometimes you just can't sleep after a long day at work. And whenever I'm laying there soaking it in....I think of Carin and the hundreds or maybe even thousands of baths she has taken in her lifetime.

And while I'm laying there...I'm also reading this, taking deep breaths and giving it all to God, reciting the entire "Serenity Prayer":
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace.
Taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it.
Trusting that You will make all things right,
If I surrender to your will,
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with You forever in the next.

Anyone want some serentity?
I'll loan out my bathtub for free.....

That does look like serenity.....I'm on my way:) That really does look inviting and beautiful. You need to take more pictures of your beautiful house and keep blogging. I'm loving seeing a window into your home:)

Thank you for posting the rest of the prayer. It's uncommon to get to the rest of it, and it's GOOD.
May you find the peace you are seeking. What a lovely place to rest and refresh. God bless you.

And I'm glad that my initial is on top since I put clothes on your back, food in your belly, a roof over your head, blah, blah, blah...

yeah, but she sweeps your crumbs, matt. i'm just sayin'. so maybe hers should be on top...

oh, I loved this post. laughed at the hundreds if not thousands of baths I've taken in my lifetime.

sometimes, I come home on my lunch, just to take a bath.

I'm serious.

When I come to Indy will you draw a bath for me?
