Do you ever think about what you think about? Our thoughts may be more important than we realize. They direct our actions, our moods, our emotions. I'm working on consciously thinking more on things that are good and true and holy and honorable. Things that are pure and lovely and gracious and kind and excellent.
If you look for things of beauty and wonder in your every day life, that is what you will find.
I am currently enrolled in an online photography class through Big Picture Classes, that prompts me everyday to use my camera. Everyday I receive an e-mail, prompting me to take a picture based on a particular theme that challenges me to look at things in a new way. Today's prompt was to find something in my surroundings that reflects the warmth, color and feeling of the sun. It caused me to spend my day looking for things that made me feel warm and comforted. Things bright and colorful. I found a gorgeous little flower on the sidewalk as I walked the kids home from school.
