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?
