The Secret Bed & Breakfast
The Sound of Silence 25 Jun 2015, 3:03 amSilence has not sound, but its healing powers can do wonders for the soul. Close your eyes, listen. Perhaps a slight rustle in the trees by a passing, hot summer breeze. A lone finch singing in the background. Few places on earth exist that have this wonder. A place where you can hear the sunbeams as they reach out over the early morning sky to dance upon the clouds. The silence allows us to reach inside ourselves, to touch our souls untouched for years. To reach a plateau of peace within. Search out the Secret and there you will find an inner sanctity, a piece of yourself gone dormant yearning to escape.

Time 14 Jun 2015, 5:37 amTime. Passing slowly, then rushing by like a brisk autumn wind. Measured in seasons. New spring flowers. Hot summer days. Brilliant autumn foliage. Bright white snow. A multitude of sunrises and sunsets lost in youth, reclaimed with age. How different would the world be if in the spring of life there was a broader spectrum of understanding, of knowing that one really does not know. Absorbing, like a sponge the "secrets" that only can be understood with age and time. Stop and listen before time passes too quickly by. #thesecretbedandbreakfast #weisslake #northernalabama
Rainbow Connection 4 Jun 2015, 5:56 amPoint of view. Once clouds existed to indicate rain or stormy weather. That changes when your view is from a mountaintop. Clouds now exist to bring color to the sunrises and sunsets or often times a beautiful rainbow after the storm!

Age....a point of View 3 Jun 2015, 4:54 amIn youth the canopy of trees provided my playground. The leaves crunching beneath my feet, the smell of decaying wood and moss in the air. Sunlight filtering through the branches.
As a young adult I craved the excitement of the big city. The neon lights, the smell of exhaust mixed with the aroma of surrounding eateries. The pageantry.
Maturity has lead me to a world of quiet wonder. A world filled with sunrises and sunsets,full moons, pink skies and rainbows. The smell of fresh cut grass, rain moving in from the valley, the sounds of frogs, coyotes, crickets, and wind chimes swinging in the breeze. Watching in amazement the birds and squirrels as they feed. A vast tapestry provided by God that I somehow missed for many years but have been blessed to discover.
The lesson learned, with age we can better appreciate what is important. Family, friends, and the shear beauty of the world surrounding us!

Moonlit Clouds 1 Jun 2015, 6:03 amThe mist over the valley sits quietly like a piece of translucent silk. The previous nights rain long gone, yet in its wake the mist sits with its grip held tightly on the valley. A gray, gloomy start to a work week for sure, but as the day progresses the strength of the sun will eventually prevail. Focus on the positives and let your own sunlight chase away the gray dreariness of the fog. In the night before the rain, the moon acted in much the same way as it pushed its light through the dark clouds.

Dawn of a new day! 28 May 2015, 3:27 amMine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God's recreation of the new day
One more morning until Friday, hang in there everyone!!!
Summer Storm 26 May 2015, 4:24 amYou can feel it in the air as you step out onto the patio. The air thick as you take in a breathe. It's coming. Black billowy clouds hang low over the lake and valley and in the distance a slight rumble can be heard. As the breeze picks up, and the wind chimes begin to dance you take up your seat in the swing. The show is about to begin. Drip, drop. Jingle, jingle. Rumble, Rumble. Then, suddenly out of nowhere a deluge of water. Jagged bands of light streak towards the earth below, bright in the blackness of the clouds. It doesn't linger long. The bucket empties then it moves on.
It is difficult to imagine the beauty and magnitude of a summer storm until you have viewed it from above. Then afterwards, as the sun returns a rainbow appears as if to say "all is well".

Magical Life 20 May 2015, 5:00 amWhen I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful,
A miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical.
And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily,
Joyfully, playfully watching me.
Life is definitely magical when you live on the tip of a mountain. Overlooking the quiet, vastness of the valley and lake. It's hard to imagine a place so serene and quiet and yet here it is. Close your eyes to the visual beauty and you will find joy in the singing of the birds and the song of the wind chimes. While all the while the sweet smell of flowers sits in the air.
