Everyday miracles and magic
If I take the Wings of the Morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; even there shall Thy hand lead me, and Thy right hand shall hold me. Psalm 139:9-10
We are never truly alone. This sculpture comforts me in a way I cannot describe. The longing for serenity, peace and calm, for me, is always to be found in nature and art. When the two come together...magic happens!
I heard this yesterday...take a deep breath...that is a gift..that is a blessing. As I thought about these words,
a quote from Albert Einstein lodged in my mind: " There are only two ways to live your life, one is though nothing is a miracle, the other is though everything is a miracle." I am choosing to focus on every day magic and miracles rather than just muddling through life.
a few simple magical moments...
watching my husband make repairs on the screened porch
while the dog tilts his head and follows him around, sniffing the paint.
a hug around the knees resulting in an almost tackle from granddarlings that are excited to see you.
friends that "get you"
angel food cake, sliced strawberries, blueberries and cool whip that a dear man prepares for you.
lots of hugs and kisses!
swinging to the call of birds, the humming and buzzing of insects, the tink, tink, tink of the chains on the swing.
what calls to you right now, what simple joys make you happy?
