I WALK IN BEAUTY
I had a wonderful summer in Chautauqua, New York, but I do love being back in Florida.
I love the warm weather and the delicious food and fascinating people and cultural opportunities… but most of all I love the wildlife. Though civilization has diminished much of the wildlife in many places, in our part of Florida there are a wide range of birds, as well as alligators and the occasional deer, racoon, and bobcat.
We are fortunate to have a state park behind our home, so we are continually inspired by the beauty around us. My husband took these photos of some of the beautiful birds in our area.
Whenever I see such beauty I’m reminded of this Navajo prayer:
With beauty before me may I walk.
With beauty behind me may I walk.
With beauty below me may I walk.
With beauty above me may I walk.
With beauty all around me may I walk.
I walk in beauty.
Where do you find beauty in your life?
