Beautiful Things

Every now and then, as I’m working on the farm, I’ll come to the realization that my mind is far away, fretting over foolish things and missing the everyday beauty that surrounds me.  I try then to remind myself that I must take care not to become desensitized to the wonders of nature;  not to take them for granted.

So while these flowers are indeed evidence that I still need to clear along the bottom of the barn pasture fence, they’re also part of the daily offering of beauty this place provides.

In the brightness of the morning sun

In the brightness of the morning sun

In the evening, as the sun sets

In the evening, as the sun sets

They’re a reminder to pause, and breathe a prayer of gratitude.
