The Golden Hour

It's 8:17pm.

And the boys are in bed

In fact they've been in bed since 7:22pm, but shhhh don't tell anyone.

The dishes are done.

The house is tidy.

And I hear the sound...





of Silence.




And let me tell you, it's a beautiful thing.

Thank you, Lord, for moments like this one. For peace. For quiet. For calm. For Smirnoff Cranberry Lime. For avacado face masks. For hot showers. For deep cleansing breaths. And for your Word ministering to my soul.

When I read the title of this post, I thought you were going to talk about that hour in the day before sunset, when the lighting is especially beautiful for taking photos. But you are equally right about the golden hour after the little ones have settled down for the night. I remember those days too, when the house was blessedly quiet, the toys picked up, the dishes done, the crumbs swept up and there was peace in the house. The quiet relaxation before bed somehow fills you with joy and makes you look forward to the new day, and doing what a mom does, all over again. Thank you Lord, for motherhood.
