Finding Beauty

"Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own…" ~ Charles Dickens

The above statement says to me…There is always beauty to be found, especially if you look for it. Today, what I saw was the yellow-green of new leaves on the trees around my home. Very soon the color will take on a deeper, darker green that signifies summer. This fluorescent yellow-green will be only a memory in a week or two. I’m so glad I took notice of this visual gift of nature this morning.

I say all of this to remind anyone reading this blog that today is the day to look around and be fed by the Spirit of nature by taking in all the beauty it has to offer.


If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
