Being Moved By Beauty

Beauty is all around each soul on Earth. Beauty is in each place, being, creature, landscape..everything contains beauty. Everything contains God. Even in those things that seem ugly..there is potential for beauty to bloom. Perhaps it will take nurturing, perhaps it will take coaxing, teaching, seeing it from a different perspective. The potential is there.
 
Beauty moves us. It inspires us, it shows us the wonderful light in each blessing in our lives.
 
When we are given the opportunity to create or grow or bring forth a previously unseen beauty we need to do it in the best way we can. This is how we honor God's gifts and blessings. He wants us to see the best, to see the beautiful potential in all things that He has created for us and blessed us with here on Earth.
 
Yet, understand that we can not do it all. It takes a willingness on the part of others to see and develop their potential. It takes more than just one person to create and sustain beauty so it can be shared and expressed to it's fullest.
 
Remember that whatever you were created to do on Earth...we need you. We need your special eye for nurturing Beauty in this world. We need your special Talent and Skill to bring more Beauty to the world where others may not see it.
 
See the Beauty in The World Today...and share it in a way that only you can.
 
Keep The Faith and See The Beauty,

Color Your Life

 ♥♥ All of us are the same, yet all of us are different. We are all human, created by God and Love. We are all living, breathing, emotional and complex beings. We all have responsibilities, friends and family and we all live our lives as best we can and strive to become better. Yet, each person on the planet is made up of different experiences, different ideas, different aspirations and different perceptions. These all color our lives, enrich our lives and should be celebrated. Today, go out and celebrate someone who is different than you...don't make assumptions, ask good questions, take time to become aware of another and their world through their eyes...not yours. You may be surprised to see their world in a whole new light...and your eyes may open as your ears open..and that is a beautiful thing! ♥♥

Restoring Our Souls

♥♥ This Sunday and all of yesterday I worked very hard to restore a beautiful rock garden on the ranch. Like all major projects of restoration..it is only when you begin that you realize just how much needs to be done to get things back in working order. I weeded till my hands felt almost numb...it had to be done by hand...inch by inch as wildflowers cover the area., and they had be left undisturbed. Wild strawberry vines and bunchgrass and other invasive weeds crept through every last inch of this massive garden. A dry stream had to be completely redug..so a channel for rainwater could be restored. Bushes and flowers needing pruning and trimming and large boulders had to be cleaned and moved back into place.
I likened this to our lives and to our souls...when we decide to make changes, dig in and clear out all of the clutter, issues and troubles so that all that is good and lasting can thrive..it is a big and exhausting project. We may feel like walking away and letting things alone...it's alot to deal with! But the hard work is always worth it ..the end result is pleasing, freeing and filled with the Grace of God.
God must be pleased that we work on our own rock gardens in life....and I am certain he will help us care for the beauty we uncover through hard work. ♥♥
