While taking a break from my housework this morning, I was thinking "Wonder where you would go for your quiet time to be alone and relax?"   Everyone needs that special place to be alone to think and refresh their minds.

At the foot of the bed in my guest room is a bench where I go every morning when I get up to read my Bible and devotional.  Many a prayer have been said here along with tears and praise's . If this bench could talk ....maybe it's a good thing it doesn't!
I love the teachings of Dr. Charles Stanley.  He's the pastor of the First Baptist Church in Atlanta. This is a devotional to start your day with.  It has helped to get me pass many trails.
Every year my granddaughter, Morgan, gives me a bookmark for Grandparents Day.  This is the one she gave me with my card this year.  She is so thoughtful. I love and use them all.
This morning I had Country Peach Passion Tea , along with Club Crackers. I love those little
crackers.  I also love how my teacup and saucer matches the box  it's sitting on and my box of napkins. I bought them all at different times..



  1. Thank you for sharing where you have your quiet time. You have a very charming area to meet with the Lord, so cozy and cute :) Have a sweet day, Sylvia!


  2. Syl, you kinda inspired my post today, tea sister friend!

    I love your reading area, this is a wonderful post.


  3. Thank you for sharing this lovely post with us Sylvia,
    A lovely quiet place to share your thoughts and pray.

  4. Such a lovely place to seek the Lord in the morning! Your bench is beautiful and your little teapot lamp is so pretty. Pretty teacup, too! I guess my favorite place if I couldn't be outside among my flowers would be in my comfy chair in the dining area with the windows overlooking the woods.

  5. I enjoyed this delightful look into your quiet place...Lovely spot to read and reflect on God's Word. I LOVE the bench...beautiful...and all the butterflies and birds designs...some of my favorite things. Since I am still a working girl, I have my devotions early in the morning with my hubby in our chairs in the living room before breakfast. He has his coffee and I have my tea while I read out loud from a devotional guide and the Bible. If I didn't have to get up so early, I would prefer to have my quiet time outside on the porch, or in nice weather out on a lawn chair in the shade of our yard. Someday I will have time to do that. But I would still want to have that special time with my hubby beside me. It is a very precious time and I treasure it. Thank you for reminding us that this is a valuable gift...time with the Lord each day.

  6. Hello dear Sylvia,
    Your teacup is so pretty; love butterflies! Your book mark is lovely and a thoughtful gift from your loved one. Your bench is beautiful and you have a lovely spot for your quiet time with the Lord.
    I want to thank you for your visit and very nice comment on my blog birthday. It's ladies like you who keep me wanting to do my very best and offer something fresh and sweet in every post I put on. Any time you would like to join in on my tea party, just let me know and I will help get you linked up. Hope you have a lovely weekend. We're celebrating our Thanksgiving this weekend.


  7. Dear Sylvia,
    Found your blog thru a blog follower that is also connected to me. I too love Dr. Standley's teachings. A special place to have your daily devotion is so important in our fast paced lives of today. Linda/Lindacrochets

  8. Hello Dear Sylvia, I was out surfing blog-land to see who some of my followers were following, and I came upon your charming blog. It is a breath of pure sweet air. I love that you have a special place to sit and pray and I must say it is a lovely chair. I am a wife, mother and grandmother (though I didn't get my first grandchild until I was 60 . . . but she was well worth the wait). Now I have two beautiful granddaughters. I am a retired activity director of an assisted living building. I love the residents and now that I'm retired, I find myself back there volunteering. I am a christian who loves life and plans on never wasting a single day. I am also your newest follower and looking forward to getting to know you better through blogging. Connie :)

  9. What a sweet Grandaughter you have Sylvia, she sounds like a gorgeous girl.
    Your peaceful place looks warm, cosy and inviting. A cup of tea to sip while you are there paints the perfect picture x
