A Sense of Wonder.......

A man should hear a little music,
read a little poetry,
and see a fine picture
every day of his life,
in order that worldly
cares may not obliterate
the sense of the
beautiful which God
has implanted in
the human soul.

by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

This just reminds me how important it is to surround our hearts and minds with uplifting and inspiring images: both physically and mentally.

We are what we look, listen and live in our lives. Therefore it is vitally important to be aware this and try to be guided by this as well.

Philippians 4:8(NIV) ~ Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Once again I am joining in with my friend Trish for my weekly LACY afternoon

"For this weekly meme, Trish is looking for posts that encourage us as godly christian women to embrace the beauty of our vocation as homemakers with joyful femininity.
I have paraphrased the description of the virtues I want to see displayed in our posts as follows:
Lovely  Admirable  Cheerful  Encouraging ~ LACE"

So please join Trish in her lovely 'LACEwork' this week (click on the image below)

Blessings to you and your homes,

Gae, that's such a lovely poem!
And your words are wise and lovely too :-)
We do become what we absorb in our environment.
Beauty and wonder are priceless gifts from our Lord!
You always have such rich things to share, Gae.
Thanks for joining us again, my friend :-)
bless you..Trish
