It’s easy to be beautiful when the sky is blue and the sun is shining on you. and when you are surrounded by beauty.
But are we beautiful when things are gray and not going our way… or alone or worse.
Do we weather our storms with grace and inner light?even when no one is watching….
especially when no one is watching.
This pink magnolia tree faithfully blooms every spring and is just beautiful. I walk out to it camera in tow many times a season and it’s always beautiful. Without fail. Regardless.
Not just on blue days but in the rain and fog too.
If only we could be like that too. That would be awesome.I struggle to… to hear my inner voice reminding me to be gentle and have a quiet spirit when my surroundings don’t want me to… but days like today it’s easier to hear it and listen to the beauty spoken around me.
Thank you for listening to the thoughts that have been tumbling around in my head.
Beautiful photography and words, Katey! It’s so easy to get caught up in the physical and ignore the spiritual or inner qualities.
Thank you Karen. And especially hard to let those come through when life is grey!
What a beautiful mind
Sweet Katie! How beautiful and the words from I Peter was a beautiful reminder! Love spring and listening to the singing of your mocking bird in the background! Love you and your gentle spirit! God bless you. Jo
Thank you jo! I loved the birds too! I didn’t know what kind they were so thanks for telling me!
Thank you Deddy!
So lovely. Good words for a gray sky morning.
Thank you gay Lynn.
Beautiful and inspiring, as usual. Merry B
Thank you merry, it’s almost time to start spotting the wild flowers
Katey, God has truly blessed you with words to encourage us all, especially me! Thank you and keep the thoughts coming. Glenna
Glenna, thank you so very much! I appreciate your kind words. Katey
That is awesome, Katey. God love you so much!!!
Always enjoy your posts so much. neighbor has a pink magnolia on my side of their house that I enjoy more than they do ( they don’t have the view of it that I do). I always look forward to seeing it in bloom. your thoughts & verse are good reminders to carry God in our hearts & to be the best we can be – whatever the “weather” in our lives.
