I have let beauty slip…have let it become optional to my day. This ought not to be.
I think it was the visit to my friend Amanda’s home while I was in Atlanta on Thursday that made me realize…I’ve been starving myself of beauty God designed us to appreciate and enjoy.
(Her house was like walking through Pinterest…She’s been so intentional about creating beauty, even with 2 and 4 year old boys in tow! I was so inspired! You can visit her blog here or follow her on pinterest)
So I’m trying to be a little more intentional about beauty in every day moments, beauty on a weekday, beauty on the bus, even.
I cleared a corner of counter this morning and ‘decorated’ for Thanksgiving. I’m stopping to take pictures of beauty in the ordinary; I’m taking time to creatively preserve the words my Father speaks to me in quiet moments (made possible by the awesome journal my friend Shannon gave me at Allume).
And it feels so right.
Have you slowed and sipped the beauty today?
P.S. I created something beautiful for YOU today–my November newsletter! It’ll be sent out later today–don’t miss it–subscribe this afternoon!
