Along the Pathway



The wonder of living is held within the beauty of silence, the glory of the sunlight, the sweetness of a warm summer's day, the quite strength of the earth, and the love that lies at the very root of all things.

When we take time to notice the smallest, even the simplest things in life, we never have to lack for encouragement.  We are surrounded by God's awesome love and assurance...

 Live your life enjoying the footpath to peace. Instead of rushing through the day, stop and consider the hand that gave life to that newly-opened flower....the hand that brings forth the beauty of silence and the hand that guides us along that pathway of fulfillment...

Blessings to each of you...  Hugs and more hugs!

I wish I could slow down more!
We are blessed with so much beauty to appreciate
We just need to take this advice and take the time to smell the roses!
Thanks for reminding me!

Hi Shug, I just commented on someone else's blog about the enjoyment of the simple things in life. There's so much beauty everywhere we look. We all truly need to look for this beauty and then share it with others...

Hugs,
Betsy

Hi Shug, I am eternally thankful for you; what a good message, at a moment when my heart is despairing and things look so dim, I can recall a moment of God's beauty and refocus my heart on him. Thank you for the reminder.
Have a great week, Hugs, Pam
