  1. Love it and the beauty of the world around us…..it’s there if you look! Thanks for sharing and hope you’re recovering, and when you do fully recover that you still stop and smell the roses 🙂

  2. I sat on the back porch last night for a long time and listened to summer come through the trees. I forget how much my other senses need to be fed too when so much of the day is spent in front of a computer screen! Thanks for the reminder that everything around is something to be enjoyed and appreciated!

  3. Thank you so much. The words allowed me to visualize this line – God jumped out in front of me, hand behind his back, and said “Close your eyes and hold out your hand…I have a surprise for you.”

    How awesome is that!!!

    Thanks for the reminder that we all need to “slow down” and enjoy all of His creation.

  4. Yes! Yes!! Yes!! God wants us all to slow down & smell the roses! We need to see His beauty in trees, flowers, sunshine, rain, birds, animals. etc.

    Everyone should take a walk outside each day, if possible, and take in the beauty of all that God has given us!

    Wonderful reminder – great post!!!

  5. No better reminder than this. I love the SLOW beauty of my life. Somedays–I spend too much time enjoying the simple. Finding a healthy balance is often one of the biggest challenges.
    Each of us MUST stop and savour what God has lavishly given us. He shouldn’t have to STOP us to get our attention.
    Still learning…

  6. I think we’ve all forgotten (myself included) that God made the 7th day … for resting. But how many of us REALLY do it? God intended us to rest. Take a walk, take a nap, try a hobby, read a book, call a friend……whatever. And while you’re resting, look around at God’s beautiful gifts!

  7. Enchanting! I’m thankful that God’s interruptions are better than our best laid plans. And why wouldn’t they be he’s the God of ladybugs, I could never have thought one up!

  8. I want to slow down so that I will see the “lady bugs” in my life. Those small, often overlooked blesses in my life that otherwise go unnoticed.

  9. it’s a beautiful thing to see things with fresh eyes. i hate that pain was the cause to do it, but i’m so proud of the heart you have that chose to see beauty around you, too.

  10. I like you have had back surgery X2 hope you are feeling better. Nature and Gardening is a great pain relief because it keep you mind off your pain. New blog on the History of the Ladybug-http://historyoftheladybug.blogspot.com/
