I don't make actual New Year's resolutions, never have, never will. But I do keep in mind some things that I might like to try to do.(Okay, maybe that is a resolution. I don't know, you can decide). One thing is I hope to appreciate each and every day God gives me on this earth. So I have decided to try to find a little beauty everyday. That might include a gorgeous sunrise or set, a cloudless blue sky, smiling and speaking to a total stranger, finally understanding a hard to understand bible verse, enjoying an author's blog, or listening to the quiet.
Well this New Year has started out being more gray than sunshiny and sometimes it's very hard to find beauty in that. But I know I have probably two more months of this before spring and I need to learn how to find the beauty in it. So I was able to capture some "rainy day" pictures and find the beauty in them. I hope you do...................................
This is English Ivy I have planted in a pot on my patio. It looks pretty happy covered in rainy droplets.The rains drops on the Privet berries look like little silvery linings.A water drop stands out brightly against the lush green of this Ligustrum leaf.And the last beauty is a false cypress. It looks like the water droplets are being squeezed out of the tips of the needles.
Now I know everyone won't see the beauty here and that's okay because we all need to see the world through our own eyes. So where do you find beauty?
