Chapter 3, Page 28, Book 18

There is nothing that makes its way more directly to the soul than beauty.

Joseph Addison

Stop the world and take in the beauty around you

Looking for and enjoying beauty is a way to nourish the soul, the universe is in the habit of making beauty.  There are flowers and songs, snowflakes and smiles, acts of great courage, laughter between friends, a job well done, the smell of fresh baked bread.  Beauty is everywhere.

Mathew Fox.

It is easy to overlook people, places and things that we see every day, but there is still beauty if we take some time to look for it.

When we look for the beauty all around us, it changes how we see the world.  We need to see beauty in everything from our daily problems to ourselves.  

Looking for beauty in everything isn’t always easy. We don’t always know how to see it or always want to see it.  But it is there and it makes life better too.  It’s worth it.

I’ve discovered that even if you are not exactly where you’d like to be, it doesnt mean that right now can’t be beautiful .  You don’t have to do anything to make it beautiful, it already is.

We get caught up in the things that really aren’t important .  Realizing that beauty exists in every moment is possible, it simply takes a way of seeing things a bit differently.  We have to slow down so we don't miss the beauty that is every where.  

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.

You said: Looking for beauty in everything isn’t always easy.

You are right, you are also right talking about it is worth it. I'd also BET that is a Grand in the picture. I love to see kids taking note of how the world changes when they put on dark glasses and take them off repeatedly and enjoying the change.

We are in the 70's now this morning. Sherry says Spring is here. hahaha.. We have a visit from our grands coming up next week, looking forward to it.
Love from Florida jack & Sherry!

Isn't it funny how one person sees beauty in something and another person doesn't?


beauty is indeed in everything around you. "Looking for and enjoying beauty is a way to nourish the soul."
