Seeing fences at a snail's pace.....






While riding in the parade route this past Saturday....I noticed this gate.  This amazing view caught my eye.  It was a leaning pine tree and the gorgeous Fall colors as they so delicately appeared in the distance.  

I've lived in Chandler for over 42 years now and I have never taken the time to notice these particular trees, during the Fall, or any other season. 




Beauty is all around us....
We just need to slow down...

The parade that day was moving at a Snail's pace....and perhaps this is the reason why I was able to see the beauty that has been there all along!




I played around with this photo and I used some of the Halloween 
editing ideas....it turned out kinda cute!!



Another view as we traveled the parade route....


Whether it's baking muffins, planting a rose, or riding in a parade.......there is so much beauty and goodness that surrounds us. Our hurried life styles, can cause us to miss out on the simple sweetness for which God gives us to enjoy!!

Not sure a snail's pace will get me very far....but...it will allow me to zoom in to the grand beauty that I didn't even know existed..

Enjoy the Blessing of this day!

My Cup Runneth Over.....


There is something "New" going on with me!  Can anyone guess?

Nope...I'm not pregnant and I didn't win the lottery.

I am learning to DRINK WATER and to Enjoy it!!

My goal?  To be able to say that my drink of choice is Water!!
(not Southern Sweet Tea)

There are so many benefits to drinking water....I've just never been one to take these benefits seriously.

For one thing....Water flushes out the toxins that store up in our bodies.
Water helps to keep the skin hydrated and can create a beautiful glow in our face.

It also helps our kidneys function well and BEST of all...it's cheap!

Well....for those of us who drink tap water....it can be cheap!


I've just never been one to drink lots of water....so I can honestly say that a half of cup is suffice for my thrist.  

But....I'm learning....I'm learning to let my cup runneth over!! I am learning to drink an abundant supply of water!!

Aside from water....there are other cups that we can invite to overflow in our lives.  

Cups of HOPE, LOVE, CARING, BELIEVING, KINDNESS, GIVING, FAITH.....


This excites me.....Can you imagine how great it must be to wake up each day and to be able to say....."My Cup Over Runneth with Kindness today"  ???

This would be AWESOME!!


don't just let your cup be filled with water, coffee, tea or your choice of drink..

Fill it with Goodness and let this goodness be a blessing to others!!

***

I have a distant neighbor who I totally respect for his acts of kindness.   This gentleman is.....let me see.....how can I say this so that you all will understand?  Lets just say that he is challenged, but not physically challenged!  He lives by himself and he is able to care for all his needs.   He can not drive and therefore....He walks everywhere.  (Something that I need to do more of)

I can look out my kitchen window, .....and can watch him as he walks across the big empty lot.  He will be heading out to find something that he can do for someone else.   

He has no problem saying whatever it is that he thinks!!!....(Which, if you don't know him....his words just might hurt your feelings)  If a person is a little on the hefty side...he might just have the tendency to let them know!!
He just says what he sees and feels!!!   This can be humorous at times!!

But.....he is always willing to do for others!  Many tines, the things that he does results in hard labor.      It is truly a blessing for me to see his generous works!  I can truly say that his kind deeds  (cup) truly over runneth!!  

We all have cups that need to be filled.....Filled to overflowing!!

CHILDREN WITH CANCER ARE LIKE CANDLES IN THE
WIND WHO ACCEPT THE POSSIBILITY THAT THEY ARE
IN DANGER OF BEING EXTINGUISHED BY A GUST OF
WIND FROM NOWHERE, AND YET, AS THEY FLICKER
AND DANCE TO REMAIN ALIVE, THEIR BRILLIANCE
CHALLENGES THE DARKNESS AND DAZZLES THOSE OF
US WHO WATCH THEIR LIGHT...........
