a few lovely things…

Golden tree with a touch of land

I miss midwestern trees, how strong and sheltering they are, but if you look at the trees here in just the right way you can still find inspiration and beauty. I don’t think it’s wrong to know where you belong but I simply must find something beautiful wherever I am… it keeps you alive, it’s in the looking… Here are some of the loveliest things I have glimpsed lately…

My reading this morning reminded me that “He is altogether lovely” and that is reassuring because life is not. but there is unbreakable beauty, keep on looking friends…

  • Jess @ Frugal with a Flourish - Beautiful picture and those look like some great links! Off to check them out!

  • Asia - that image is so pretty… the colors are really similar to some photos I’ve been shooting in our neighborhood. And yes, I agree that it is so important to find beauty where you are and strive to find it in the every day. xoxo

  • Amy - Great links. Heading to check out the aprons.

  • Aiming4Simple - Your words here are an inspiring reminder. I love your list of loveliness too. We bought the Crazy Heart soundtrack shortly after seeing the movie. Thanks for directing me to the moving post from Lisa.
