Beauty Amid The Chaos... Insulating... Calming

I look for Beauty everywhere I go... it has a positive energy that I find to be refreshing, inspiring & uplifting...

Life can become very chaotic... and on this 10th Anniversary of the 9-11 tragedy it can hold terrible memories, loss & sorrows for so many and remind us of the evil that exists in our World... but if you focus on the Beauty amid the Chaos it has an insulating, calming effect, it is restorative.

Beauty is subjective and certainly is in the eye of the beholder... but if you seek it out, you will always be able to find it.  It's there, just waiting for you to discover it... to notice it... to appreciate it...

The Good Lord Created so much Beauty in the Natural World for us to enjoy... and endowed each of us with the ability to bring forth the Beauty from within and Manifest it outwards to others... it's our choice what we sow...

NOTE: These amazing Star Light displays are made entirely of Cutout Paper!

When Life becomes chaotic, stressful, holds sorrow or loss, either for yourself or those around you... and threatens to overwhelm with the negative atmosphere & energy it creates, it is tempting to only focus upon the challenges, the negatives, the drama of it all.

I think that particularly during those times when things get heavy and dark, and restoring Balance is crucial, we need to find the Light in whatever form it Manifests. 

 It will be easier than you think, because even a small Light chases away darkness and illuminates giving you the ability to see more clearly. 

Beauty for me is always a Light in my Path that makes the Journey more pleasurable.

Regardless of what twists and turns, valleys and hills I must traverse in this Journey of Life, seeing Beauty where ever it can be found has been a Joy I appreciate fully.

In Nature it abounds...

Springing up even sometimes amid the decay and ruin of man-made things...

And so much of it is so Magnificent and Grand that we can only stand in awe of the Master Creator of it all...

And then there are those things of Beauty that those with Artistic talents create...

And what a Joy it is to see their Vision come to Life in their Art!

And it makes me glad that they chose to use their Time, Treasures and Talents to create something Beautiful to add to this World...

So let us each saturate the World with Beauty, Love and Mercy...
It can overcome so much of the darkness and evil that exists...
And replace it with a Positive energy and the Fruits of the Spirit that are pleasing to the Lord and Blesses everyone that it touches...

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. ~ 1 Corinthians 13:13
