My cup runneth over

Last night I was reading one of my favorite books, Simple Abundance.  There was a sentence that so stopped me in my tracks.  She said to close your mind and open your eyes.  I love it!

I stopped reading and looked out my window.  Pure beauty and gratitude.  I would like to think that I take notice and appreciation for all the things in my life-big and small.  I'm so at peace that I have to admit, it oftentimes feels strange.  But then again, His word promised me peace that surpasses all understanding.

So with that being cup truly runneth over.  I absolutely refuse to sit by and not participate in my life.  I simply will not do it!

Love for a great day,

Good Evening China Sweetie...
Oh in my mind, as I read this post, a beautiful butterfly just flittered right by. I am sure she is coming your way. Be on the lookout.

I too, find myself looking out the window and am so, SO thankful for all things BIG and small that God has graciously bestowed upon me and my family.

Thank you dear one for the beautiful share. So happy you love your journal. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Hello My Lady :) - Wonderful indeed.

Sherry, believe it or not, it seems that everywhere I look, I now see the word wait or patience. That journal is turning into quite the jewel ;-)

Don, I love, love, love your comment! It confirms that guilt and peace cannot comingle. I guess since most of my life was spent people pleasing and caring for others that at times (not too often) but, at times, the peace seems too good to be true :)

Love, peace and blessings
