I heard a quote in a movie yesterday that I've always liked, that always makes me stop and think:
"Live for today, for yesterday is gone forever, and tomorrow may never come."
Do you savor today? Do you take time each day to stop, even just for a moment? To look--really look--at the world around you?
To recognize the gift of each day?
I can't say I always remember to do that. But today, I did. Today I stopped. Not for long. Just for a few moments. I sat in our yard swing and looked around. And saw so much beauty!
In case you didn't get a chance to do the same today, here is a taste of what I encountered. May you find in these snapshots what I did: a reminder that the God of the universe loves beauty. And He loves to share that beauty with His favorite creation of all time: you and me.
Peonies, in all their splendor!
A peony visitor, and Columbine
Last year the woeful lack of honey bees meant almost no peaches or cherries. This year, the honey bees are back! And with them, our peaches and cherries! Yippee!
Don't know what the red flower is, but love it. And aforementioned honey bee visiting the lavendar.
California poppies went to town this year! Along with most of our other flowers. SO pretty!
