Peace and Beauty


Next time a sunrise steals your breath or a meadow of flowers leave you speechless, remain that way. Say nothing, and listen as heaven whispers, "Do you like it? I did it just for you."

This stream is only about a 10 minute ride from where I live. I love to go there now and then just to see and hear the water. This photo was taken in the Summer. I love the sense of peace I feel when I look at this photograph. Imagine how it feels to stand there and see all this beauty that God gave us. No matter where we live, we all have a place like this that makes us feel at peace and helps the stress to melt a little bit. It may be a flower garden, a field, a pond, or the park. No matter. The next time you are feeling overwhelmed, go to that place, sit for a few minutes and soak in the peacefulness and beauty. It might surprise you how much better you will feel. It may help you see things in a different light. You may have an important decision to make, or perhaps you just need some inspiration. Try it. It works. Do you realize how much negativity is thrown at us each day? We have to get rid of it ~ cast it aside ~ look at positive things ~ have positive thoughts.

I wish you peace and beauty today.

thanks for sharing your world Audrey. This place is heaven on earth. There is nothing more soothing to me
than the sound of moving water. It must be wonderful to walk there and just listen to nature in all it's glory. xox Corrine
