All Things Bright and Beautiful

So much to post, so very little time this week. It seems like we are going, going, going all of the time. But sometimes I am reminded that I need to slow down and enjoy this world God made. Here are just a few things I have enjoyed recently:
  • Yesterday morning I looked outside as I was getting #4 up. I saw a baby bunny hop by my front steps. I chuckled to myself when a squirrel ran up our front steps and just stood by our door. Meanwhile, the birds building the nest were going crazy with the intruders so close. I felt like I was in Animal Kingdom which is rare around here. It was just so sweet (and funny).
  • Sunsets. I always try to make a point to watch the sunset even if just for a minute. I just love the colors, the clouds, the beauty God paints across the sky.
  • Yesterday for lunch I was at a workshop so we went out to eat. I had a grilled chicken and almond salad with sliced avocado and this delicious Parmesan dressing. It was not only delicious, it was one of the most beautiful salads I have ever seen. It was truly a work of art!
  • The nest the birds have built yet again in the corner of our front porch. Those noisy things make a huge mess but we have enjoyed watching each day as they added on a little more to it. I imagine we will have babies soon.
  • The sunshine. After receiving a whole lot of rain, the sunshine has been a beautiful sight.
  • Last week my class visited a little zoo/safari in our area. As we were crossing a little bridge or visiting an animal (can't remember which), we saw a beautiful full blown spider web.
  • The sweet faces of my children. They may drive me crazy at times but I love those faces. (Hubby too :)
  • The picture of heaven I read about in Heaven is for Real. Warmed my heart.
  • The green color everywhere. One of the positives of all of the rain we have received. The world just looks so alive right now.
  • A sweet mom landscaped around our school sign this past weekend. The flowers are beautiful.
I better stop for now. I really need to take more time to find more...there is beauty all around us even in this fallen world we live in.

What beauty have you seen recently?
