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.
My class prompt the other day was to find quiet beauty in the world around me. The picture I took for that day was of an unripe lemon on our lemon tree in the back yard. But it also made me think of a recent whale watching outing the family took. While that day was windy and the seas were choppy, the whale was unaffected by the conditions of the ocean. It was a beautiful, elegant, calm, quiet beauty.
