Snapshots & Whatnot: Seeking (waterfalls of) Beauty

With things looking grim here in the USA and around the world, Virginia thought a few doses of waterfall beauty might lift our hearts a bit. It may seem a little weird seeking beauty when times are tough, but that’s kinda why Virginia started this blog. To find roses in the rubble we need to be on the lookout (especially when times are tough) otherwise we might miss an opportunity.

“Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God’s handwriting.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.” Anne Frank

“Beauty itself is but the sensible image of the Infinite.” Francis Bacon

“Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul.” Saint Augustine

grace, peace & waterfall beauty

      I’m with you, Tim – any excuse to revisit Banff & Jasper (even just thru pics) is a journey of wonder & gratitude for God’s heavenly paintbrushes busy at work! 🌟💦🌟
