Looking for the Little Loves

Happy Peek-a-Boos

L'Ile de la Cite viewed from the Pont des Arts

L'Ile de la Cite in the middle of the Seine

Door- one of Paris' thousands (millions?) of extraneous bits of beauty

Underside of the Pont de Bir-Hakeim (pedestrian/metro bridge)
A fountain of clean sparkling water backdropped by perfect blue sky

My biggest blessings about to cross the river
In Paris, there is more beauty the more you look. 

I'm convinced that life is the same way.  God is good-- lavishly, extravagantly so.  He spills out kindness from His very being; it just overflows everywhere.  Everything He does is poetry, art; nothing is wasted, nothing is random, nothing is left out.  He does everything on purpose-- and He does everything well.  Reading One Thousand Gifts has helped me to remember this and to seek opportunities for thanksgiving in the "mundane."
