See the Beauty...

I need to breathe.  I need to let go of the stress and the busy schedule and just for a moment, kick my shoes off and feel the dirt between my toes. I need to feel the wind and sun on my face and be quiet before my God.
I needed to open my eyes to truly see the beauty around me. 
Even when where we are is not the loveliest of places like windy mesquite tree filled west Texas, it can be beautiful.
There is beauty to be seen everywhere. We just have to open our eyes and try to see beyond ourselves for a moment. I just needed to stop in my tracks and breathe.  Oh, and enjoy the blessing of sharing a visit with two of my favorite people-  Jan and Burl.
I needed to look and smell, walk and be still.
Breathe.
Looking closely we see the shades of green and the weeds that flower and new babies figuring out life.


 I praise Him for the striped skies of cotton candy clouds  and for skies burning with the color of late evening. Thank you God for old friends that stare and remnants of times gone b…

He Is Risen! The tomb is empty! We are saved.  Thank you Father.
Matthew 28 New Century Version Jesus Rises from the Dead28 The day after the Sabbath day was the first day of the week. At dawn on the first day, Mary Magdalene and another woman named Mary went to look at the tomb. 2 At that time there was a strong earthquake. An angel of the Lord came down from heaven, went to the tomb, and rolled the stone away from the entrance. Then he sat on the stone. 3 He was shining as bright as lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 4 The soldiers guarding the tomb shook with fear because of the angel, and they became like dead men. 5 The angel said to the women, “Don’t be afraid. I know that you are looking for Jesus, who has been crucified. 6 He is not here. He has risen from the dead as he said he would. Come and see the place where his body was. 7 And go quickly and tell his followers, ‘Jesus has risen from the dead. He is going into Galilee ahead of you, and you will see him there.’”…

Why blog about a bird? Simply because it is so lovely. There are no colors like God's colors. Matthew 6: 25-27
25 “So I tell you, don’t worry about the food or drink you need to live, or about the clothes you need for your body. Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothes. 26 Look at the birds in the air. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, but your heavenly Father feeds them. And you know that you are worth much more than the birds. 27 You cannot add any time to your life by worrying about it.
