A smile is the beginning of peace.
- Mother Teresa
Yesterday I was finding myself in much need of some Peace. I was really exhuasted from all the packing and homeschooling and mothering and houskeeping and laundry and all that is involved with being me. So what is a girl to do who is need of some peace after she has read her bible of course. Well I actually was just to tired to read I really did not want to think at all so I made a pot of tea and busted out the BBC movie version of the Jane Austen novels my father gave me and pressed play. I decided to watch Persuasion and it had been awhile since I had watched this I forgot it was so long. But by the end of the day the whole family was huddled around the T.V. (shhh even my husband)to see what was to become of all the wonderful characters that Jane Austen creates. And we had many moments to laugh and smile and some much needed rest and peace to follow.

"Come unto me, ye who are weary and overburdened, and I
will give you rest" Matthew 11:28
