Surounded by Beauty

The last few days have been fantastic! The days have been sunny and warm. I have been in awe of the beauty around me.

Last night a thunderstorm rolled through and left a beautiful rainbow behind.

I can never look at rainbow without thinking about Genesis 9:8-16.

I am finding new life everywhere. This lilac is from my grandparents old farm and means so much to me.

Soon I will smell their sweet fragrance and see that beautiful purple.

Megan can't get enough of the warm, fresh air.

She grabbed a bucket and went on a nature hunt. She brought back sticks, leaves and pine cones.

While at Lowes over the weekend I couldn't resist picking up a couple of things. A few pansies for my potting bench.

A new bird feeder. Currently it is hanging off of the back porch. This won't be the permanent home.

Until I find a permanent home I am enjoying watching the squirrels from my kitchen window. It is certainly entertaining!

Unfortunately our warm days are over for a while. The forecast for the next week is only in the 40's. I am so grateful for the last few days. It is amazing how a little sun and warmth will lift a girls spirit!

I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
