Sometimes we need to stop and listen

 This morning, i fed all the animals, dogs, cats, bunnies... I was going to the coop and opened the front door and stopped. I could hear the birds. Lots of birds. I can't remember the last time i heard birds. I wonder to myself. Were they always here and you never noticed them ? Am i always too busy to notice beauty in nature surrounding me ?. Their songs felt good, i smiled. Sometimes the most important and beautiful are the small things. We just have to stop and pay attention.
have a great week-end.

Hey :)

Indeed, we should take the time to listen to nature, perhaps it has a hidden message. And awh, I wish I had a bunny, well actually a snake! Yes, a snake!! They're just realllyyyy cool. If I should keep my promise to myself I'll (this Spring.early Summer) when I travel to the zoo, I would LOVE to hold one...I'll find a way. Ok, enough of me an my randomness :)

Have a nice weekend :)

I loved this, to be reminded of the simple beautiful things we take for granted each day.

We all need to stop each day to appreciate all that God has created and given us.

Amen! I know I am guilty myself of living such a fast-paced life that I definitely need to slow down and appreciate everything around me!
