Wednesday Vignettes: Walk in Beauty



“To be creative means to be in love with life.

You can be creative only if you love life enough

that you want to enhance its beauty,

you want to bring a little more music to it,

a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.”






“Here is the world.

Beautiful and terrible things will happen.

Don’t be afraid.”


Frederick Buechner




“Life is full of beauty. Notice it.

Notice the bumble bee, the small child,

and the smiling faces.

Smell the rain, and feel the wind.

Live your life to the fullest potential,

and fight for your dreams.


Ashley Smith

but few see the flowers in it.”
