You don't have to go far . . .



to find . . . 

Inspiration
something to quiet the mind
things that are ordinary
and beautiful

things right outside your front door


bubbles and reflections in a water fountain


flowers and petals that have dropped to the ground


a fern growing in between timbers used at a table at my nursery without dirt


water drops hanging on to the dried pine that dropped from the trees



beautiful, simple things
that remind you that there is so much to see
when we really look

things that make you slow down
take notice
and give thanks for right here, and now

[p.s. can I ask a favor? my boy has some blood work next week at his infusion. his
red blood cell count has been elevated and it needs to come down or he may have
to have some more extensive tests. Will you pray with us that it goes down to normal? xo]

Have a wonderful weekend, and stay warm!
Love, Kim

Beautiful, just beautiful! I can envision little whimsical fairies flitting through the ferns just a little out of sight. I think your view of everyday things are so interesting. I would like to learn to see how you see. :)

Simply stunning images. The stuff we step over everyday is truly beautiful if we just take that extra second to look closer. I will keep your son in my prayers.

Wow. A huge YES to this! Yes to finding the wonder in the simple and ordinary that is around us all the time. YES to that fern...something coming from {almost} nothing! And...yea, to continuing to hold your and your boy in my prayers.

Beautiful post and will definitely pray for your son.

I have found that since picking up the camera (again) I am far more aware of my surroundings and draw inspiration from them all the time. Great examples.


Prayers for your son's improved health.

I'm honored to pray for your boy, Kim. I'm reading Laura's Playdates with God and your images fit right in :)

These are truly beautiful finds and a lovely reminder to keep our eyes open for the beauty in our everyday life. As you said, it's right at our front door.

I hope the red blood cell count comes down for your boy.
