Wonder

" The problem is that as long as success is defined by just money and power, we are never going to be able to enjoy that other aspect of the third metric:  wonder." ~  Arianna Huffington

This was part of the speech that Arianna Huffington from the Huffington Post said in her commencement speech at Smith College.  And that is what I try to bring to my life daily, all the little wonders of this world that are far more important than money or power.  How can we not see the wonder in all the beautiful spring flowers that with all the rain we have had recently are in abundance....

The purples....


the reds.....


the pinks.....



Raindrops on roses....


And baby Cardinal eggs...7 of them!!!


Yes, thank you Arianna Huffington for reminding us that wonder is so much more than power or money.

"To those who believe, no explanation is necessary; for those who do not believe, no explanation is possible."  ~  The Song of Bernadette

Until next time...

  3. So true and I try very hard to do this also. I think we do as long as we have our cameras with us to show us. Lovely presentation.

  5. What beauty! The flowers are stunning, but I can only imagine how neat it would be to watch the progress of the cardinal and her nest.

  6. I have found that having experience, not material things is what really makes me happy - wonder and awe - too bad they can't be bottled!! Beautiful wonder here . . .

  12. Wonder frequently comes into play as far as money and power go for me. I often wonder where my money has gone and lack the power to magically refill the wallet after it has mysteriously disappeared.

    These are beautiful flowers.

  14. Such beautiful shots - especially the rose - beautiful!
    My Dad didn't always go to church with us. His work schedule (shift work) didn't let him but it didn't stop him from showing me his beliefs in other ways. The way he planted a garden and never complained of no rain - he carried water when he had to. He always said you just have to wait and see. He planted flowers every summer and watched the birds and enjoyed a gentle breeze blowing through the trees. He stopped, he looked, he listened and he felt God in the everyday. It's what I try to do as well.
    Both of these quotes are spot on!

  15. All your photos are amazing. Love all the colors, and the picture of the eggs.
    We had the blue Robin eggs this Spring, they all hatched
    and the babies have now flown the nest.
