Beauty and Blessings

I was just sitting on the back deck, taking a break, when I noticed this scene. Sometimes, we can have something beautiful right in front of us, and we don’t see it. Now, in this case, there was a multitude of beautiful things to look at, but when this came into focus, it made me say, “Wow!” I’m always talking about focusing on the good stuff, but I have to admit it’s sometimes difficult to zero in on just one thing when we’re surrounded by beauty and blessings.

Have a great day!

… or not.

It seems we too often get used to things and, even when they are beautiful or special to us in some way, we allow them to become just part of the scenery. Or, in our relationships—spouses, relatives, friends—we stop seeing what makes them special to us.

We should strive to never get used to the beauty and love with which God has blessed us.

My Wheels Don’t Turn

We’re having a fantastic spring here in east central Texas, and hoping it doesn’t snap off into a brutal hot summer like it did last year. Oh, we know it’ll get hot, we’re just hoping it doesn’t get THAT hot again! We’ve already had more rain the first four months of this year than we did for all of last year, so we got that going for us. And, things are looking good; too good, seeing’s how I have to mow the lawn every week! Read the rest of this entry »
