“Ok, I keep getting opportunities to say this quote I made up myself so I’m going to share it again on FB so you can say it too:“Children are like gardens, if you tend to them they tend to give you beautiful gifts in return.” -MFB
You can reverse children and gardens or use the word “friends” to replace either one and its still true.I guess I need to find a great picture I took of children playing in a garden and put that quote on it and repost it …unless YOUR motivated, feel free…Hey, let’s have a contest! See who can make the coolest version of a quote photo and lets go viral with it!”

The True Secret of Happiness in our Daily Life

Standard

“The true secret of happiness lies in the taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life.” 

~ William Morris

"The true secret of happiness lies in the taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life."  ~ William MorrisI LOVE this quote. I have to say that William Morris is a person who has influenced the way I live, creatively. He supported the arts, and liked to have beautiful things around him. It was his believe that things didn’t have to be merely functional, but interesting to look at and interact with as well.  A serving spoon can be a work of art~! 

Beyond that, we can look up, look around, and find beauty all around us. Compare the color of a tree trunk to the sky behind it. Take a closer look at the inside of a flower. There are often sparkly stones inside of concrete. A drop of water can contain a whole miniature world~! When light shines through leaves, they look like stained glass. What an amazing world we live in~! It is important to our health to observe the world around us using as many of our senses as we can.

BE INSPIRED~!

Look up, Look around…

Be Happier in your Daily Life~!

What do you see that is amazing in what many think of as the ordinary world? Teach us to see something new in our surroundings. Please leave comments~!

God’s Glory

Standard

Leif Hetland and Lightning“The goal of creation is to “glorify God” (see Ps 86:9, John 12:28; 17:1). God’s glory is the radiant display of the divine nature. As God’s life is poured into individuals and flows through individuals to other people, we individually and collectively “image” God…”   ~Leif Hetland, Seeing Through Heaven’s Eyes

What a great quote. I get the simple concept, but this is really much bigger than it looks. I just started reading Seeing Through Heaven’s Eyes last night. This quote made me pause. I’ve reread the quote about 5 times, and I’m not done yet. This is something I’ll have to chew on. I love it~! Leif Hetland blows my mind. Hearing him speak years ago set a fire in my spirit that has not gone out.
