Charlene Costanzo (author of The Twelve Gifts From the Garden) nudges us to embrace life and take in nature’s beauty.
“Those who find beauty in all of nature
will find themselves at one with the secrets of life itself.”
– L. Wolfe Gilbert
Sometimes it’s shown with tears. Sometimes it brings silent awe or a bliss beyond words. Sometimes it comes out as laughter.
“It” is what can happen when we see beauty in all of nature – in all of creation – and we sense our oneness.
While seeking to see that way today, let’s also aim to embrace life, as it is, as it comes.
With reverence, gratitude, and joy,
PS – The photo collage below features a few demonstrations of beauty that I saw in Sanibel’s botanical garden yesterday. I’m sharing it with love.
