Just living is not enough--

"Just living is not enough," said the butterfly. "One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower." ~ Hans Christian Anderson

The times I've felt suffocated, crowded out and completely invisible are the times it helps to be taken away by the beauty of places I've been. Like a butterfly, I spread my wings and fly.

I do agree--just living is not enough.

So beautiful. God sure is something, isn't He? I too get to feeling like the world is crowding me out sometimes. Like the busyness of life is unbearable and that I'm just going through the motions. When I get out in nature, that stress seems to melt away.

I hope that you have found your balance in God's creations. God bless you!

What beautiful images. The top is my favorite. Are you lucky enough to live there?

Mott - glad to see you over at my blog again! Missed you! I'm happy the message reached you. It's something that is so easy for me to get swept up in - letting things control me or make me feel overwhelmed and inadequate. Time to NOT LET IT!
