Advice from a Tree

Happy 4th of July to my American lovlies!!! Hope that your day was filled with fun and laughter, good friends and good food :)

I was fortunate to have the day off although it's a regular day here in Canada. Spent it running errands, catching up on zzz's and just chilling.  The weather's been sweltering hot too, which I'm not going to complain about because I'm not a fan of the cold. 

I saw this pic and thought that it was inspring:

There's a lot that can be learned from nature, if we take the time to stop and observe.  The bible even speaks of rocks crying out in our place if we don't raise our voice to God. A rock seems like the most "dead" thing out there, yet God can and will use them (Luke 19:40). In the picture above, a tree that just seems to "stand" there can be used to minister to us. 

Ladies, life has a lot to offer. Let's not be too preoccupied complaining and miss the beauty of this world, the beauty of life, that God has so graciously blessed us with.

Bless and Love Y'all!

Stay Pretty & Precious,
