(Need to start at the beginning? Day 1) <– Yesterday’s post went out early and incomplete. Here’s the finished post, if you missed it.

Do you have any alone time? How do you use that time? How does it impact how you face life and your various relationships?

… solitude is refreshment for our souls. Naomi Judd

During the green months where I live (Pacific Northwest), I try to start my day in a chair outside with a cup of coffee and my Bible. It’s one of the sweetest ways to start my day. Lots of blue and green and relative quiet (we do have a rooster).

Well, today, we had our first light snow, so now I’ve settled into a warm corner of a loveseat with my cat, coffee, and Bible. Not totally alone, but Paul leaves me to myself and the cat naps, so it’s all good.

That said, without moments of aloneness and quiet, I’d be quite the cranky girl. I need that time to settle into God’s presence and I need moments of quiet and calm to settle my thoughts, get creative, or work through plans.

How about you? What part does alone time play in your world?
