Surprised by Beauty for Friday: Countryside

The next few days will be busy for me with papers due and reading to be done so I won’t be online much, but I wanted to put up a beauty theme because of how important I think beauty is in the spiritual life and in daily living. My husband and I have begun our search for our dream home in the country and we have spent a lot of time driving through the rolling hills and Appalachians of our area. That means the theme I have selected is: Countryside. None of these images are mine and were found on Google Images. Pax.

Monday Beauty Theme: Quiet Places

The last few days have been very busy. I have been going almost non-stop. We also found out that my brother-in-law is very sick with what appears to be meningitis. So it’s been a hectic and disconcerting time. When I sat down to do this week’s beauty theme the word that came to me was: quiet. I decided to search for images that depict quiet to me, or at least I would sense quiet if I were where the pictures were taken. None of these pictures are mine and all were taken from Google Images.

Monday Beauty Theme: Sunny Autumn Days

Monday is the day I take my daughter to the local Catholic Homeschool Co-op, so I don’t have much time for writing. Instead I thought I would post some more beauty. It has rained 9 days out of the last 10, so it has been a great blessing for the sun to come out today. The sky is a piercing blue and there is not a cloud in sight. So today’s beauty theme is sunny autumn days. I found these on Google Images. God bless.
