I’ve been marveling lately at the blessing of living in an area which, although suburban, still retains much pastoral beauty.
These sheep live about 2 blocks from my house. Most days I drive by, but today I couldn’t. It was simply too beautiful.
This guy stood still as a statue, watching me.
This one sat contentedly.
A few wandered closer.
I loved the moss growing on the fence,
the shelter of the tree overhead.
I laughed as this one went to scratch his back on a low branch. The wad of wool indicated that he was not the first.
I find that the more I notice simple beauty in the world around me, the more alive I feel. The more alive I feel, the more I notice.
And I can’t help but think, it really is a wonderful world.
What beautiful thing have you seen today?
