'You can take no credit for beauty at sixteen. But if you are beautiful at sixty, it will be your soul's own doing.' ~Marie Stopes


Photo Challenge Submission
Beauty is all around us.
I challenge you to find it.
Find it in the traffic.
Find it in the stress.
Find it in the packing of lunches, the mayhem of the grocery store, and the line at the gas station.
It is all around us.
Every day.
Every moment.
You just have to look.
I just have to look.

Some places I go to find beauty are 


See you there.
In the beauty filled places.
Where do you go to find beautiful things online?
Do share.

You have such a way with words, Becky :) I think that's a wonderful challenge. I'm going to look for beauty in some unexpected places today. But my usual go to place would have to be your blog. Every morning there's a nugget of wisdom, beauty and truth to find here :)

Cindy said...

Your blog!

I live in an area with lots of tall evergreen trees. When I get to certain locations (even the grocery store parking lot!) I find myself looking up and enjoying the beauty of the clouds and the wide open sky.

Cindy said...

Where do I go on-line?? ooooh. Well, my first answer was right! :)

Tezzie said...

amy said...

oh how sweet and so brand new. I love the moment you captured so beautifully

Adrienne said...

I love this sweet moment you captured between mom and baby. Beautiful!

I love looking at Pinterest, too. But then I get mad at myself for losing track of time when I have so many things to do. I guess I have a hard time unwinding. I also love Bugguide.net but I guess I am a little strange. I think insects are just so intricate. And when they are in 2D format, I'm not tempted to run and get the vacuum cleaner to sweep them up.

Ashley J. said...

Oh how gorgeous! Sweet and so full of love <3

Kia Bishop said...

So sweet!

Busy Bee Suz said...
