Do you take the time to stop and just enjoy the beauty of things that surround.

 I do not have a lot of days that I have to my self but when I do..I try to go to a place I have never been even if it is only a few miles away from my home...Somewhere I go and take my camera and capture the simply things that most do not even notice. I love the small things and the simple things that have beauty..I know they say the beauty is in the eyes of the bolder.. So these things to me are beauty..Hand made by an artist from the past..

Another simple but beautiful  piece..Hand forged by an artist from the past.. Rusted and forgotten. The rust  has made the piece that more beautiful. It brings out the smallest of details. .

So another piece of beauty..  Another artist that used their hands to mold and carve this piece.. Old and forgotten now.   So I suppose you know I am walking the local cementary..It is a peaceful place with trees and flowers and artists from the past.  It is also filled with graves of lifes that once walked this earth and had dreams.. They no longer dream, they no longer get to enjoy the simple things for the time on this earth has past.  So Live your days with joy and enjoy every moment of your day.. Praise our Lord and thank him for your blessings and give your heart to the creator..The one who gave his life for you. Jesus our Savior.

You said, "The rust  has made the piece that more beautiful". Makes me think how we can be made beautiful by time and the storms we weather.

Thanks for bringing us along on your walk.

Grace, peace and love to you sweet Katelen

Hi Katelen,

Beautiful finds on your walk.
I understand the season you're in right now and how even leaving for more than 30 minutes can be difficult.

Sending you hugs and strength.
I'll try and email you this week.

Dear Katelen,
just like you i love wandering (old) cemetaries. I even blog about cemetaries. I also love old things rusty, brownished spotted papers etc. Because of the whispers from the past. Lovely post and wonderful photographs.
All the best for you, xoxo
