In Search of Beauty

I’ve dreamt of this in my mind, longed for it in my heart and felt it from the depths of my soul for some time. At Christmas time the new camera I got was a gift of creativity. I’ve been waiting for Spring to show her colors so I could capture each one. And then recently my sweet soul friend Catย felt and saw my dream: spending an afternoon in the glorious grace of nature, seeking out the bounty she brings with the arrival of spring. It was indeed, like being a little girl again…stirring up some of my most favorite memories of being outside and at one with Nature. Synchronicity stepped in too, because just yesterday morning I turned back to the start of my journal to read a childhood memory I’d written….all about playing outside on the rocks, our swingset and in the grassy yard with my big sister.ย 

So I’m elated to share the beauty that greeted me on every corner and with nearly every step. The squirrels even played along a bit! When I look at these images, I feel something stir deep within myself. I can’t help but smile. We are blessed to be surrounded by so much grace. And yet, with the busy-ness of our days, we miss it. Today, I’m savoring it. xo

For you, Cat….

Loved these beautiful purple pansies. Something about how the colors are woven together….

And these yellow were right beside them. The sun was beginning to set….

Met a new friend….he was here as I began and also as I headed back home….

Who wanted to play Hide & Seek!

One of the last blossoms to open on this tree….perhaps she was waiting for me….

Streaming sunlight felt like Angel dust….

A little sun worship? No worries for my little friend….

Robins everywhere….singing….looking for nest materials…

This might be my favorite….stunningly beautiful….Mother Nature’s inspired art….

Spring in Her glory….

So naturally She creates Her beauty…..

Even the Pine trees join spring’s birthing process….

Life & Abundance present everywhere….how do we miss it?

Sweet Adieu my friend….

As the sun continues to set…..Grace shining through the trees….

Our guide for the journey. I realized just now – hers was the first photo I took as I began….and one of the last before going back into the house.ย

  1. What a delightful post ~ the pansies, the squirrel, the statuary, the blossoms on trees.

    When we are awake and aware . . . what glorious sights we see! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. I’m finding that in a whole new way as I’m taking photos, Nancy. Also find that those squirrels can ‘get me’ every time…I could take their picture all day long. ; )

      Loving the advent of Spring in all her glory. xo

    1. LITERALLY just five minutes ago I was thinking of you, my friend…and resolved to visit your blog this morning and see if you are still here…leave a little note. Hope all is well with you….what a delight to ‘see’ your lovely self. XOXO

      1. ๐Ÿ™‚ See how we are? LOL I popped over here the other day when you first posted this, but neglected to leave a comment and felt the pull this morning. I haven’t blogged in weeks… so many words and feelings in my head, but nothing seems to want to make it’s way to the screen. For a season, it seems that it’s all about what’s happening on this side of the screen. LOL All is wonderful here, thank you. And thank you for sharing your joy with your new camera. I have a feeling this could be a wonderful new way for you to express the beauty of your spirit with us. xoxox

        1. Understand the state of being…with all the words inside, but none flowing outward. Feeling similarly. My self wants to write…but the spirit isn’t in that space.

          Glad to hear you are well….Life has certainly brought her joy and light into your life over this past year. Love watching it all unfold.

          I think you’re right….taking these photos feels like being in a dream of creativity. There is a space of Oneness. Always grateful for your presence, my friend. Be well. Much love…xoxo

  2. Ah, Jackie, you needed this. You needed the flowers, the fresh air, the creativity and to get outside in the open air and outside of yourself! I can smell those flowers and hear birds singing!

    Amen. I hope you are feeling the love!

  4. Beautiful photos and what you say here. It’s true that I fail to notice all the beautiful things that surround me. Almost like I have tunnel vision with the only things seen are basically futile, in the end

    1. The beauty of it, my friend, is we have only to pause and step outside our door. It all awaits us….quiet, still, open. Would love you to find that moment today…and just wait for her to find you, too. xo

I always love to hear your thoughts....xx
