"If..." Take 4

"If you were to pick the moment of each day that you feel most serene, when would it be?"
(from "If: Questions for the Soul" by Evelyn McFarlane & James Saywell)

Hmm... The moment that I feel most serene, huh?

I think it would be one of maybe two.  I generally feel quite serene when I'm riding the bus and reading (though, granted, in the morning, I'm not sure I'm awake enough for it to be true serenity, and not just sleepiness!)

But probably the truly serene moment of my day is that part of the evening when I'm home, in my own space, and sinking into bed with a book.  It's the time at night where I quietly and prayerfully do a bit of reading, where I evaluate my day, and where I look ahead.  This is the time that I spend most faithfully with Jesus, and it's definitely a place of peace and serenity for me.

What about you?  How would you answer this question?
