Sunday Thoughts ~ August 4, 2019

“New beauty meets us at every step in all our wanderings.” ~ John Muir

Good Sunday morning, my friends.  With your coffee or tea in hand, come along with me for a short walk through a little beauty of this earth.  Even though the walk may be virtual, the beauty is real.  So, let’s begin with sea oats dancing in the breeze, celebrating a glorious sunrise at their home on Folly Beach, in South Carolina.

“Joy in looking and comprehending is nature’s most beautiful gift.” ~ Albert Einstein

Nature, with her enthralling beauty, is truly captivating.  Aren’t the flowers amazing in this enchanting fog?

“How right it is to love flowers and the greenery of pines and ivy and hawthorn hedges; they have been with us from the very beginning.” ~ Vincent van Gogh

I could admire the beauty of this garden all day.  With such a lovely entrance, one can only imagine what must lie beyond the gate.


“My heart found its home long ago in the beauty, mystery, order, and disorder of the flowering earth.” ~ Lady Bird Johnson

I certainly agree with Lady Bird Johnson, as that is where my heart resides as well.  Perhaps, your does too?


A walk in nature walks the soul back home.” ~ Mary Davis

Dear friends,  as Emily Dickinson once said, “I hope your rambles have been sweet, and your reveries spacious.”


Thanks for visiting.  Wishing you and yours a beautiful day.


May you ‘meet new beauty with every step.’

 “Look closely. The beautiful may be small.” ~ Immanuel Kant

Ahh, yes, the flowers and fog, and all the other photos make me long for cooler days and maybe a road trip through rural parts of West Virginia. Have a wonderful Sunday.
