Find one beautiful thing every day and take a photo of it.
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Beauty Day 170 Spring Breakup of the River Ice
Every year in the north country
comes a day when river ice breaks up
it’s a day of celebration dancing singing
flowing good cheer
and it should be
because life continues
moves on to fuller days ahead
little did I know
as I lay sick and motionless
for nearly two weeks
that the ice pack was melting
and fissures deep within
perhaps because of stillness
with little outward stimulation
I had time to hear and could hear
the deeps within me creaking groaning
and finally the ice began to break
and so it begins again
new life new commerce
good cheer and miles of new roads up ahead
after so many years
the bathroom is on its way
to getting some fix
and who know where that will lead?
what pray tell comes next?
