For me, a positive attitude, and increasing faith, often comes down to a sense of wonder and being grateful. When I notice the beauty around me, I can’t help but be thankful. The center of this Fun Journal sums it up. Flowers seem so frivolous. I’m so glad God made them. Maybe appreciating beauty isn’t frivolous after all…. especially if it helps take my focus off my problems and helps me look up to the Creator of all beauty.

  1. This is a really joyful page and so beautifully drawn and coloured. Very inspirational and a sentiment I try to weave into my daily life. One of my current pleasures is to visit the garden in the evening to enjoy the scent of honeysuckle. How could you not be amazed by something so lovely. Elaine
