On Living a Beautiful Life...Every Day....

Easy for me to say...
If you are reading this on
Friday the 27th of February
we are returning from two glorious
weeks of vacation.

We have enjoyed sand,

theme parks,

new geography,
historical sites,
and good books.

We are an interesting blend of tired and
invigorated. Ready to return to those
things so precious and familiar...

Such as...
our two dogs

and two cats.

We have especially missed the people
who have cared for our beloved pets...
our Mothers.
Thank you, Moms!

We are ready to take our positions
of responsibility back at work, church,
in our homeschool co-op and in our home.

Our secret to living a Beautiful Life?
Knowing the One
who created beauty.

We see it in nature.

He made us in His own image...
try that on to boost
a sagging self image

Our family returns enthusiastically to our
regular lives renewed and recharged.

Making each day beautiful in its own
right by staying connected with
our Creator,
purposefully caring for
each other
and taking the time
to do those things
that bring joy into the
lives of those around us.

Being willing to take the time
to be healthy and whole, in order
to be able to serve well
This is admittedly my largest
struggle when it comes to enjoying
the beauty in life.

I look forward to accomplishing
some of my new goals this week.
I'll document them and be thankful
for being held accountable each week.

Enjoy your beautiful life...
It is so precious!

You are right that the way to live a beautiful life is to be close with our Creator! It is His life in us that needs to be lived!
