Do you ever...

Do you ever just sit and look at something and admire it's beauty...look at every little detail and wonder how amazing life is...
These 6 white birch trees came into our lives when things looked sort of sad..and scary...
I was about to become unemployed...my company had been sold...one I'd worked at for 20 years...
Our beloved dog, Sydney had developed cancer... and two wonderful trees we planted when we moved here were dying...
We took a chance on these...we took a leap of faith...that although life as we knew was changing...God would look out for us as He always has...
So now this morning as I sit and look at these magnificent trees...I am in awe of their beauty and reminded that life is so full of wonder and goodness...that things will be OK...that we will be alright...and to slow down...step up a little closer and examine the beauty that surrounds me...
Enjoy your day, my friends and look for the good today...you will find it!!

These trees are beautiful inspirations, Linda. So many are going through tough times right now with this bad economy. Having faith helps so much to keep our spirits lifted.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs, Pat
