Summer has arrived on the prairie and with it beauty has bloomed in the pastures. Here are a few shot of my favorite purple wild flowers.
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen. ~Elizabeth Kubler Ross
This picture was taken the evening of Sunday June 21st. There was tornado activity to the east of us and northwest of us. This was the view of the clouds from our yard; I was facing northwest when I took this shot.
Be anxious about nothing. But in all things, with prayer and supplication, with acts of thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God. ~Philippians 4:6
Go to your fears, sit with them, stare at them. Your fears are your friend, their only job is to show you undeveloped parts of yourself that you need to cultivate to live a happy life. The more you do the things you’re afraid of doing the more life opens up. Embrace your fears and your fears will embrace you. ~Jackson Kiddard
A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey. But, a woman of strength has faith that is it in the journey she will become strong. ~Luke Easter
We started haying last Thursday afternoon and the weather has been cooperating. I wish all of you a wonderful week!
