The Secret Bed & Breakfast
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.
Life's Rainbow 14 May 2015, 4:38 amDo not regret the decisions you have made. Those decisions shape the person that you become. Rather, live in the moment unafraid to take the chances that may in the end enrich your life more than you could ever have imagined. In the end it's the people you meet along your journey that can really add to your life, not the mistakes you make getting to them. Much like adding colors to your life's rainbow! Is it time to begin your "Secret" journey?
Spring at Weiss Lake 13 May 2015, 4:33 amIf a flower blooms in a meadow and no one is around to see it does its beauty still exist? Is there still the sweet smell on the breeze? Spring, a time when everything wakes from its winter nap and sheds its winter coat. As the days begin to warm into the heat of summer there are still those mornings when a cool breeze passes through putting a slight chill back into the air. On those mornings, a warm cup of coffee and a jacket are all that is needed to enjoy the twittering of the birds, the singing of the wind chimes and the scent of the flowers. Alabama the beautiful does not even begin to touch this bluff on the tip of Lookout Mountain!

Moonlight and Roses 4 May 2015, 4:53 amSitting like a sentinel, high in the spring sky. Waiting, faint at first, then bright and white as the sky puts on its coat of deep blue. The frogs begin their serenade and the coyotes begin to howl. Its light illuminates the rose blossoms, making them glow in the darkness of the night. While a light breeze coming in off the bluff tickles the blossoms making them release their subtle sweet smell into the night air. Only the moon is witness to it all. The moon, and any who know the "secret" place. A place from which every sunrise and sunset, every full and crescent moon, and every season on mother natures pallet can be savored and enjoyed.
Do you want to know the "Secret"?
A Great Weekend!!! 1 May 2015, 5:26 amTGIF Y'all!!! It's going to be a gorgeous weekend! And a busy one here at The Secret. The pool is nice and blue, the flowers are all in full bloom, no rain in sight! There is so much to do here in Northern Alabama in addition to enjoying some quiet and relaxation. We have state parks, wineries, a wild animal rescue park, fishing, glass blowing, and plenty of antique stores. Not to mention the great southern food and hospitality!
Youth 30 Apr 2015, 5:37 amPaths that seem clear in our youth, with age become less defined. Life experiences give us the wisdom to challenge what we once thought to be true. Be careful what you stand for in your youth, once worn down, the path less taken might just be the path that leads to the proper destination and/or conclusion.
Sunshine and Blue skies for the weekend with many more down the road!
