Something to Share

"Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting"
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

In a world that can seem pretty chaotic, overwhelming, and highly negative at times it is such a great sense of comfort when a person can just stop and sense something beautiful in the world. Something natural, something free, something beyond anybody or anything. Something with a purity that can never be tainted.

Looking at this picture, it just reminds me that every so often it is OK to stop and take a breath and just enjoy what is in front of me right now. To stop worrying about the little things that don't matter so much and instead to focus on the real things that matter, or that will matter in the end. To think about the treasured relationships I have in my life, what I should do maybe to improve them, maybe get in touch with someone I have not talked to in a while. It may also remind me to send a prayer in the direction of someone who really needs it right now. No matter how bad I may feel at times, there is always someone out there going through way worse. It is important to think of them too. And simply, just be thankful. Be so thankful.
