My Piece of Heaven

I am abundantly grateful for my piece of Heaven!

On weekday mornings, when I do not have to go to work, I get myself a hot cup of coffee, put a fire in the fireplace, sit down with my knitting or crocheting and watch Home and Family on the Hallmark channel. I am so happy! This is my piece of Heaven!

Due to several snow days, I have been delightfully blessed with this pleasure this winter. I finished this baby blanket while enjoying my piece of Heaven on Thursday.

 A year or so ago, I read in a Debbie Macomber book what she thought her job would be in Heaven. Right away, I thought about my job in Heaven. I immediately knew my job would be to knit/crochet angel wings. I see myself sitting outside a beautiful little country cottage, at a small round table with a yellow umbrella above it, knitting angel wings. When angels need new wings they will come to me, and I will make their wings. I also see a pitcher of lemonade and beautifully decorated cookies on the table to share with my angel visitors. The angels will sit, rest and have a treat, and I will knit and listen to their stories about their jobs in Heaven.

I am very grateful to be in my home, all warm and cozy, crocheting angel wings this winter. 

Thank You, God, for my piece of Heaven.


  1. The start to your mornings sound so peaceful and calm - mine are far more rushed as I leave quite early to go to work (but I do try to leave early at the other end of the day so I can come home to enjoy my little cave!).

  2. Hi Terry - I love your beautiful blog and your emphasis are gratitude and being thankful for the many blessings God gives us all. I am also a teacher - high school English. Wish we got a few snow days here in Phoenix but we never do (darn). Oh well, life is good as we "shovel sunshine" out here in the desert. We'll be roasting at 115+ in just a few months. Have a good week. I will visit again soon!
