“The more I see nature, the more I am amazed at the Creator.” ~ Louis Pasteur
Good morning, dear friends. I hope this finds everyone well and that you have enjoyed a lovely week.
We have actually been enjoying spring these past few days. Spring often arrives slowly in North Central West Virginia. And, this is one year it has arrived ever so slowly. However, the spring flower show is underway and I wish I could cast a spell and extend these gorgeous days which are full of blooms.
Beauty does not linger; it only visits. Yet beauty’s visitation affects us and invites us into its rhythm; it calls us to feel, think and act beautifully in the world: to create and live a life that awakens the Beautiful. Beauty is a gentle, but urgent call to awaken.” ~ John O’Donohue
“Perfumes are the feelings of flowers.” ~
“Hummingbirds are small angels of fleeting joy.” ~ unknown
“Most of us lead far more meaningful lives than we know. Finding meaning is not about doing things differently, it is about seeing familiar things in new ways. We can see life in many ways; with the eye, with the mind, and with intuition. But perhaps it is only for those who have remembered how to see with their heart that life is ever deeply known or fully served.” ~ Rachel Naomi Remen, MD
Dear friends, even though, now more than ever, many of us have an abundance of time. I don’t believe we want to look back on these days and wish we would have savored certain precious moments. I do not. Truly, my thoughts are those of John O’ Donohue…
“May you take time
to celebrate the quiet miracles
that seek no attention.”
Wishing you and yours a beautiful day and week ahead. Stay Well.
“Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made and forgot to put a soul into.” ~ Henry Ward Beecher
