437. Happiness flutters in the air whilst we rest among the breaths of nature. ~Kelly Sheaffer

Good heavens, of what uncostly material
is our earthly happiness composed…
if we only knew it.
What incomes have we not had from a flower,
and how unfailing are the dividends of the seasons.
~James Russell Lowell

Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars… and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful. Everything is simply happy. Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance. Look at the flowers — for no reason. It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are. ~Osho

“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ ~Matthew 25:21 ✝

Thank you, Lord Jesus, that you save, you heal, you restore, and you reveal Your Father’s heart to us! You have captured me with grace and I’m caught in Your infinite embrace! Like Saint Hildegard Lord, may I too be a feather on your holy breath and spread, like seeds, the gospel abroad.

  1. and yet for all the beauty we see around us the earth groans with sighs too deep for words–and we groan inwardly as well waiting for the redemption of our bodies. One day we will see ALL the glory poured into Heaven AND Earth–what glorious sights await us!! I can hardly imagine! Blessings ~ Laura

  2. My reader dropped you, along with I don’t know how many others, 3 that I know of, but I wondered where you were so I came to your blog and you were “unfollowed.” So now you know why I’m “following” you again:) Flower is beautiful, Natalie.

    • I’d been wondering why I hadn’t heard from you in a while too. I’ve read several comments lately where other people have complained about people being dropped from their reader. That just shouldn’t happen. Now I’ll be watchful to make sure that doesn’t happen to me too. Hugs, Natalie 🙂
