Find a daily something beautiful

For lack of a better word I will say quest. I’m on a quest to find something daily that makes life beautiful. With all my schedules and my never ending todo list the minute I wake up I go and go and by the end of the week I’m exhausted. So I need to find a little something each day whether it’s a just 10 minutes of calm in the morning or a quiet time on my own after work. Because this is a challenge I don’t know how it’s going work out but I will try and share most of the details here. Please keep reading to find out what my ‘a daily something beautiful’ was this weekend.

Do-it-yourself spring flower arrangement

While I do not know anything about flower arrangements, I know how to cut and dip them in jar of water, and I know what I like in flower arrangement. This is my second attempt at flower arrangement. My first attempt was over a year ago it was small  and I thought it was messy. Following a week of feeling ill the plan this weekend was to do nothing physical or stressful. But focus on finding some calm and just let my body rest . So that’s what I did, well mostly.

If I was not going to accomplish anything in these two days I wasn’t about to waste a glorious day by staying in the house. So I went for a long walk. Just to admire the new season and to feel the wonder of nature coming to life. It was magical. I felt calm. A gentle soothing breeze, an easy sun and the sound of bees buzzing on fresh bloom, reminded me of the beauty and grace of our Lord.

As I explored the deeps of the woods it took me back to growing up in small village in Kenya. A place I’m happy to call home, a place  that my mom often calls a ‘sleeping village’ with no electricity or running water, life was simple at its best and beautiful. Like a calm flowing stream of cold water with your feet inside. I sat down by this stream. Taking deep gentle breaths slowly forgetting all the worries of life and soaking on the sweet scent and the embrace of amazing grace. I was happy to experience a unique sense of love.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul..

These sparkles were real. As the swan swam across the sun fell against the pool and the water sparkled with every stroke.

This weekend I found something, something small, something beautiful about life, calm, the flowers.  I picked these bunch of flowers from the woods and made this beautiful arrangement. Which I’m quite happy with. And with such a wonder I look forward to the new week and hope you have the best week and that you find a daily something beautiful.

    I love this! Nothing like seeing the beauty in life daily. And your flowers came out great. I’m sure I would’ve been worse off than your first attempt lol.

    Your photos are so beautiful, I could feel the peace and quiet through them. I love it. I also love this challenge idea. I too get really busy during the day and try to reflect daily something good that happened. I have some free time this weekend and I now feel inspired to make a flower arrangement
