Abounding Beauty

The beauty of the Lord surrounds you each and every day! Have you taken time to enjoy it, breathe it in, live in the glorious splendor that is His creation. There may be imperfections in the human day-to-day interactions of life, but when you glance at brilliant sunset, feel the caress of a gentle breeze, and smell the fragrance of a beautiful rose, there is no doubt that God created perfection! Take some time out from the hectic insanity of life to enjoy and embrace the abounding beauty of God and find rest from the hustle and bustle. All my love for a wonderful week ❤


Finally, brothers and sisters,
whatever is true, whatever is noble,
whatever is right, whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable
if anything is excellent or praiseworthy
think about such things.
~ Philippians 4:8

Abounding Beauty

Manifestation of eternity
Wonders and beauty unsurpassed
Exquisite paintings of divinity
Sunrise and sunset intoxicate
Delicate allure of something more
Gloriously designed hues captivate
Flowers delicately bloom fragrant
Majestic trees outstretched
A palate of colors ever so vibrant
Seas ebbing rhythmically to and fro
Gentle waves hypnotizing
Mountains of wonderment to behold
Sparkling sun oh so bright
Stars dance and spin in procession
Darkened world lit by moonlight
Lovely breezes that embrace
Rains bring unyielding growth
Vivid portraits of divine grace
Beauty that awakens love
Stunning images capture imagination
A royal tapestry from heaven above

Greater ~ MercyMe

Everyone wrestles with the world, with its perceptions and views of what and who we are to be. We often wrestle with doubt, fear, hurt, condemnation, and anxiety. However, God is greater than all that we face, feel, think, or wrestle with! He is the Victor, and through Him we find freedom and victory no matter what we battle.

May the peace of God surround you and fill you with the knowledge that you are God’s child, His joy and His creation, and He loves you and will be with you through it all.

God bless and keep you always!
All my love ❤

True Beauty

In the world of illusion, where advertisements are photo shopped, spray tans are in, and Botox and facials bring hope of eternal youth….it is important to remember that true beauty does not come in a bottle, from a store, or the latest fashion magazine! True beauty comes when you shine from within. What the heart holds dear, what the mind focuses on, what is displayed through your words and actions….that is where true beauty comes from.

So quit trying to be perfect!!!  Quit trying to live up to a standard that not even top models can live up to (hence the reason they are photo shopped!). Quit listening to the world’s view of beauty, for it is shallow, meaningless, and empty.

Instead, rest on the fact that God created YOU, designed your every feature (even the ones that drive you nuts!!), and he made YOU in His image….a reflection of His love, hope, passion, and joy.  YOU are an original work of living, breathing art–a MASTERPIECE indeed!


All my love and may you see who you truly are through God’s eyes, instead of your own!

For You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother’s womb.
I will give thanks to You,
for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
~ Psalm 139:13-14 ~
