Hopeful Friday

I'm participating today in Beautiful Cielo's
~Hopeful Friday~

I've taken on many projects lately (a good thing!)
But like everyone else, feel a little stressed at times...
~ I need to step back and breathe... ~

Never lose an opportunity of seeing
anything that is beautiful for beauty
is God's handwriting.
Welcome it in every face~
in every fair sky
in every fair flower
and thank God for it~
as a cup of blessing
~Emerson

Hoping this finds you with much Joy
and many, many blessings in life this Friday
...and always!

Au Revoir for now...

Emerson is a favorite of mine, and these words are so meaningful.

We do all owe it to ourselves to take time to listen and enjoy.

CIELO said...

Our beautiful Savior knows us so well... is no wonder why he reminds us so empathically to just live ONE day at a time.... do that my sweet friend, just live the TODAY, and let all your tomorrows rest on His hands.

For now, autumn is here! Let's go searching, searching after
Joy and mirth and love and laughter, let's go down the road together, you and me.

Hugs
