These days, many people use Pinterest as a place to post such inspirational things. I thought I'd take a few of those things, as well as others, and put them here.
I love sunflowers. When I see them alongside the road, I can't help but smile. Their heads are always facing the sun, something that never ceases to amaze me.
When I was in college, I studied abroad for a semester at Harlaxton Manor, a 19th century manor house in Grantham, England. The building inside and out, the grounds, the landscape, never cease to inspire me.
The Aran Islands off the coast of Ireland are a bleak, stormy place. But amid the rocks and the grey skies is a determined beauty.
Every now and then I find myself looking at this outfit. Inspired by the early 20th century in fashion, it is both historic and modern. It is elegant and beautiful.
During World War II, Coventry Cathedral in England was bombed by passing German planes. The day after the cathedral was bombed, the congregants gathered inside its ruins and decided that they would rebuild. A few decades later they completed the promise, and built a beautiful worship space next to the ruins of their former cathedral. The new cathedral is filled with stained glass windows that reflect onto the floors throughout the building.
Be inspired today by the beauty of God's world!
