Enchant your everyday. Beauty

Ah beauty.

Beauty in the eye of the beholder.

Beauty in song.

Beauty in dance.

Beauty in books.

Beauty in poetry.

Beauty in photography.

Beauty in the eyes of my children.

Beauty in flowers.

Beauty in the touch of my husband’s strong hands.

Beauty that binds with the most fragile of chords.

Beauty in being understood.

Ah beauty.

 

 

Happy Friday

I hope you have a fabulous day.  Here’s a great word to try out.

Today, I’m grateful for time to haunt the forest and enjoy some beauty and solitude.  I shall indulge my nemophilist tendencies. 

I’m also very grateful for my family, peaceful moments, and my dogs who keep me active.

Suddenly, Grace flows

Happy Friday!

I hope your Friday is full of Grace and Peaceful enjoyment to usher you into a fabulous weekend.

  
Today I’m supremely grateful for a lunch date with my Zumba buddies today, time this week with my oldest friends.  Sara took me to breakfast, and fed me body and soul.  She encouraged me and lifted me up.  Cheryl and I went to lunch and laughed and told stories like we were still 19 year old college students.  To think that I’ve been blessed with friends that are so wonderful, when we get together, it’s like no time has passed.  We just pick up where we left off.

I was actually social this week.  I got dressed, got out, put on makeup, and interacted face to face with people!  Amazing.  It was like coming out of a dark cave into the light.

I even got a note from my lovely Friend Yvonne.  I have to call her to catch up.  I miss her.

I’m grateful for my business friends who have sent my resume out to their contacts with their recommendations of me.  I now have 3 interviews next week.  My cup runs over.  

How did I get so blessed?  It’s so humbling to receive this kind of love.  The beauty surrounds me and overwhelms me.  I thank God, He is soooo good to Wendy, especially when I don’t deserve it.  He never gives up on me.

Also, I’m thankful today for my WordPress family and the wonderful encouraging comments this week.  Love to you all.

Spring time green

I am always in awe of how many shades of green spring out at once. 

Beautiful day to take a moment and breathe in the spring day.

The last 60, no the last 360 days have handed me hurdle upon hurdle. Break upon break. I’m not saying others don’t have it worse than I. I’m just dealing with what has past, and looking forward thinking of what it has taught me.

When I saw this on Pinterest it spoke to me like nothing has in a while.

Instead of looking at the wounds as ugly scars to be hidden, I now look at them as the wounds that have created a more beautiful soul.

One who is more thoughtful. One who is more choosy in phrasing a request, or a correction. One who isn’t ashamed of what I’ve gone through.

I’ve thought about the power of my words to uplift and heal, or tear down and harm.

Sorry isn’t enough, neither is holding a grudge. But The One who put us together can, through the beauty of forgiveness make us more beautiful for being broken.

What are you doing to let go and be put back together in a more beautiful way?

Wandering

We wander down the narrow constricted path.

To one side is the high, towering wall, to the other the steep, deep ravine.

Yet we trust in that path, step after step

Enjoying the beauty that surrounds us

Be it dangerous and unyielding, it is beauty in its own being.
