A quiet day

I have a wonderful day at home today.
One, I had so much encouragement from your comments one of my posts
from yesterday, thank you! I think I wrote back to each comment - I don't always 
manage to reply to comments - just not that organized - but I do read each one!
[though I have gotten some troubling spam that I DELETE immediately 
once I have been notified of it, 
but obviously that is not any of my friend's, YOUR comments!]
Thank you so much. 
Sometimes just being reminded that it is a common struggle,
not having friendships or friendships changing or how moving impacts
So today was wonderful not only because of your comments but because
I got to have a day at home alone, where laundry and dishes got done,
my Mom helped me solve my dinner menu dilemma
(I realized that I could not make the ground lamb rolls, it was too 
complicated/time consuming and I did not realize I had to do a slow
defrost for the phyllo dough.)
Tomorrow I am so excited to make Valentines day dinner for my 
Sweetie Husband... it feels good to affirm our love in this practical way
and I have small surprise I got on Etsy for him.... I don't remember 
celebrating Valentines day last year... the evening is the eve of a Feast day for us...
we are not able to got because of timing/needing a hotel (we are trying to 
keep costs lower this year)/lack of energy to drive during rush hour, etc...
so... we will enjoy being home and having a special meal...
I am really excited... 
I know for a lot of people Valentines Day is not a fun day,
for a variety of reasons; so if that is the case in your case,
I pray that it is a day that is not painful and that you will
have something nice to encourage you and God's peace to 
comfort you.... 
On that note, I leave you with this beautiful song,
that I always find comforting...

Happy Happy Happy Valentine's Day to you and Mr. Husband! I pray your day is extra-special for you both! I love the view from your window down onto the darkened street, witht he lights reflecting on the window and the beauty of the flowers. May your day be blessed with God's love all around you! Hugs! ♥

Happy Valentines Day to you and your hubby! :) Glad you had a relaxing day at home. Those eggs look good! I might have that for supper! God bless! :)

Thank you for linking to "The Deer's Cry"! I learned it from this singer a couple of years ago and used to sing it every day, but then I stopped... it is wonderful to listen again and maybe I can start up my daily blessing from it again.

Thank you for posting that beautiful piece of music sung so wonderfully by Rita Connolly.
I hope you special Valentine's supper is/was delicious. ( It might be well into the evening when you read this).

Never having heard this song I was mesmerized by the voice/voices and harmony. Then I looked up the lyrics and followed along. What a beautiful song - in music and in word.
