When you possess light within,
you see it externally.
- Anais Nin

My heart aches when a loved one is struggling hard to heal... I seek better understanding with prayer and in nature. When I take time to briefly seek quiet, I am able to rediscover the light that lives within me. I feel a beacon of goodness prompting me to create a new framework of hope - one that will also help my loved one to feel optimistic with the gentle influence. Into each life comes shadows and light... today I choose to dwell in the warmth of gentle Light...

Passing along to you wishes for a light-filled day...

I love the quote that you have on here today. I think that true beauty is the light that is shining in all of us. I'm sorry your friend is having hard times right now. You are a dear person, and I can imagine it is troublesome for you too. I wanted to tell you I love your black and white photo on your Header. It's so pretty. Have a nice weekend, Karen.

About Me

My photo
I have always been inspired by my Grandfather's particular generosity and encouragement, along with his love for others and nature. His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
Each day provides its own gifts.
