Be still....a Giveaway

With the crazy pace life often takes (at our own hands) it's easy to get stressed. To loose focus and become overwhelmed.

I often have to stop and remind myself to simplify, to find my center. I find my simple moments in nature...watering the veggie garden in the quiet of the morning. In watching my kids play and share together. In the 20 minutes I take to Journal each night with my Husband. Kissing my kids each night before bed.

These are the precious moments of my day that remind me to stop and be grateful for the simple blessings.


This necklace was a total happy accident. (thanks Tracie ;) I Loved it so much I made myself one that says "be still"

My favorite "quiet" time of the day is when I get a chance to snuggle with my 10 month old daughter, Aubrey. The moments are rare when she will let me hold her without her being squirmy, but when she does, it is pure bliss. Nothing like it in the world.

Pastor Nicole said...

My choice of word for the necklace, well, I'm torn, either "breathe" or "risen". :o)

Love the necklace! Super cute!

My favorite quiet moment of the day comes just before the day is done. I've just finished tucking my lambs into bed, tidy up the house and then sit down to the computer for a recap of the day before shutting down the house for the night.

As Told By Molly said...

I really love "be still", because it can mean a lot of things. However, I think I would personalize the necklace with "patience". My birthstone is pearl, but I think orange topaz would look stunning.

My favorite quiet time is once everyone is asleep. I can grab a diet soda, log online and catch up on the days happenings.

mattie said...

wording of choice would be "be the change"

thanks!

I love putting my son down for a nap, it's just the two of us, he holds still, I get to hold him, we read stories and snuggle, I look forward to it everyday I get to do it and miss it on the few days I don't.

Brooke said...

If I win (and it's beautiful), I would pick the word hope with a pearl, and give it to a friend who is going through a hard time.

Laura Ferry-Jimenez said...

favorite quite time is at night, putting my girls to bed. sometimes reading a story, sometimes just rubbing their backs. always a prayer. :)

Laura Ferry-Jimenez said...

I would stamp: "amor" or "paz"

Carol said...

My favorite quiet time of the day is at 4:30am when I get up, the house is quiet and I read my scriptures. I love that time of the day!

Carol said...

I would have believe stamped on it!

Crystal Elizabeth said...

My favorite quiet time of day is when I'm first waking up, and all I can hear are the birds chirping.
It starts my day out in a happy way.
:)

Crystal Elizabeth said...

I would have the word 'serenity' stamped on it.

:)

Super cute necklace!

Alexandra said...

My favorite time of day is first thing in the morning when I wake up and roll over to see my 5 month old son awake too and smiling at me. He nurses for a little while, watching me the whole time. Then we both fall back asleep for a little while longer until the day begins. It's the most amazing part of the day for me.

Scrapjoy said...

So glad you like it Canela -- it is funny how things work out like that!! I love the necklace I did keep. :) I am drawn to "Believe" but also like "Dream" and "Family". Love your new blog look!!

Alexandra said...

I would have "breathe" stamped on the necklace. My husband and I often remind each other to stop and breathe in the wonderful moments in our lives. Especially since it's so easy to get bogged down by the mundane everyday stuff.

Monica said...

My favorite quiet moment today was rocking my soon to be 2 year old in the rocking chair early this morning while thinking of how big he is getting and how small he was...

Monica said...

I would stamp "love" or "bliss"

Maria said...

My favorite quiet moment is when I run at dawn. No kids or husband, just my footfalls and my breath.

Maria said...

I would have joy stamped on mine.

Lori said...

My quite time is first thing in the morning when everyone except the dog is asleep and I am sipping my coffee.

Lori said...

My work choice is harmony

Bridgette said...

My favorite quiet time of the day is when my daughter naps and I am awake to watch her dream.

Bridgette said...

My choice for the word would be "just wait".

Sue said...

I have two favorite quiet times of the day: first thing in the morning when I sit in our sunroom and read my devotional reading and communicate with God. The second would be in the evening when I snuggle in my robe on the couch with our cat Mac on my lap. I love listening to him purr and know that he is content.

Maddie said...

My favourite quiet time would most likely have to be curling up in bed with my dog beside me so I can read a good book. Especially now when all I see out my window are fluffy snowflakes falling from the sky. Absolutely peace and tranquility.

Maddie said...

My word of choice would either be "Fly" or "Freedom." I would choose these words because a lot of the time, since I am still in high school, I feel caged, the need to fly and travel. Whenever I do go away for a while, I see things I couldn't always find at home. It's the greatest feeling when your feet touch different soil and you take in that first breath of salty air by the coast.

Weight Loss Gal said...

My favorite quiet time is the end of the night when everyone is sleeping I can collect my thoughts for the day and catch up on anything that needs to be done without interruptions.


I would have it say "4 ME"

Weight Loss Gal said...

My favorite time of the days is at night when the house is quiet I can have some me time with no interruptions.


I would have it read "4 Me"

Shannon said...

I love be still because I need to remind myself to sit back and enjoy the little things.

Shannon said...

My favorite moment is just after my 8 month old daughter finishes breast feeding at night. I sit and hold her, listen to her breathe, feel her soft skin, smell her hair and then kiss her lips before putting her in her crib.
Even though having a baby (and breast feeding) is not always easy this is a moment I will cherish in my heart forever.
Thanks for asking!

Kari said...

My favorite quiet moment is when I rock my daughter to sleep and she is sleeping happily in my arms.

Courtney said...

I love when my son goes down for his mid morning nap. I have the house to myself and this is where I take time to get things done, or simply catch up on "me" time. It is good.

Kari said...

I like lots of others words, but I think I would put "Take a chance"

Courtney said...

I would have the word on the butterfly charm be "become". The butterfly was a worm. I'd love to gift it to my eldest daughter who is quickly "becoming" a little woman. But it can also represent a reminder of always praying to "become" the person God wants us to be. :-)

Katy said...

I love my quiet time in the shower. It's so rare these days to get a nice, long, peaceful shower (I'm usually rushing in and out because of scheduling or a 8 month old getting into everything), but on the weekends I can take a looonng quiet shower. It's my little haven even just for a moment!

Katy said...

I think I would stamp something like 'they don't stay little' to remind me that my boys will be grown before I know it and I shouldn't wish for the day to pass so quickly.

m,r, and b said...

My favorite quiet time is when my hubby and daughter are asleep and I can relax knowing that we are safe.

m,r, and b said...

I think that I would have "beauty" stamped on the charm. I would also choose a PINK gem. I love PINK!

Polish'd Cindy said...

My favorite quiet moment is when I hold my youngest son before he falls asleep.

I would have "HOPE" stamped on the necklace and I would like it with a pink stone or a pearl.

Love the necklace!

Bridgette said...

my favorite quite time is when my husband and i get to snuggle our 2 year old right before bed time. He's a 2 year old high energy kid, so i love it extra when he settles down and lets me hold him. I love it when he wispers in my ear "love you so much, mom"

Bridgette said...

i would have a star stamped with the word Faith

thepaperroSe said...

quiet time.....you think you will never have it, then in the blink of an eye, your children grow up and leave the nest and you have lots of it.....until they all come home! Mine will fill the house tomorrow to celebrate my birthday....can't wait for all the noise!

Thelma said...

My favorite quiet time is when I can get my 3 youngest ones to take a nap all at once... It does not happen often but when it does, it is so nice and serene. =)

Thelma said...

My choice word would be "serenity". With 4 kids ages 8,4,2 and 8mo. I do not get that very often- However, when I do, it's AWESOME! =)

Whimsical Creations said...

My favorite quiet time is when the kids go to bed. It's just me and my hubby time. =D

Whimsical Creations said...

I would put create on it.

Jessica said...

My favorite quite moment of the day is my morning up of coffee while reading a copy of Our daily Bread!

Jessica said...

I would stamp joy on the necklace, because my life is filled with it!

Cathy said...

My fav time of day is my time in the morning with God, some good tunes, and the bible. :)

Cathy said...

I would have "fear not" stamped on a pendant. :)

Tammie said...

my quiet moment- watching my youngest nap - he is just so still.

Tammie said...
