Summertime in a Bottle 21 Jul 2015, 5:05 am

"If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I'd save every day like a treasure and then
Again, I would spend them with you."
How long has it been since you have taken the time to just enjoy yourself or that special someone? Don't let summer pass you by without taking the time to relax and breathe. Soon Labor Day will be upon us, then like a flash it's the holiday season. Come on up for a visit, your "Secret" mountain hideaway is waiting!!!

Serendipity!! 17 Jul 2015, 5:03 am

"Sometimes serendipity is just intention unmasked."
-Elizabeth Berg
Serendipity means a "fortunate happenstance" or "pleasant surprise".
Maybe serendipity truly is the desires of our heart and souls finding what they are yearning for. Serendipity is what brought us to The Secret and made it our home. I hope you will visit us soon for a glimpse into what we found.... Refreshing peace that sings the sweetest song to the soul.‪#‎thesecretbedandbreakfast‬



The Pace of Nature 16 Jul 2015, 4:08 am

Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
We should always listen. We should listen to ourselves.... Mind, body and spirit. There are times when we must get away to renew, refresh, and revive ourselves. Nature can teach a lot about patience. In our busy plugged-in, instantaneous lives it may seem absurd to wait a year for a rose bush's next blooms or several months for the return of the warm weather birds. The beauty of the rose blossom and the melodious songs of the birds are always worth the wait. Slowing your pace, taking in the beauty of our Mountain refuge will help revive your body and soul. Come enjoy nature in her summer splendor.

Late Night Swim 10 Jul 2015, 4:46 am

As the sun slips down below the mountain the heat of the day diminishes. The locusts and tree frogs begin their nightly serenade, and the chickens go to roost. SPLASH! Under the veil of a deepening darkness the warm water of the pool is a refreshing end to the day. The sunshine of the day has taken away the chill of the water, yet in the inky blackness of the night it's temperature still cools the skin. Close your eyes and let it surround you with its quiet comfort. It's not a secret, I will share.

The Sound of Silence 25 Jun 2015, 3:03 am

Silence 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 am

Time. 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 am

Point 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 am

In 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 am

The 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 am

Mine 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!!!
