Blog Your Blessings Sunday: Heaven on Earth

We do not merely want to see beauty, though, God knows, even that is bounty enough. We want something else which can hardly be put into words--to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it.

These words from C.S. Lewis describe the perfect summer day filled with genuine laziness, good companionship, sunshine, heat, big flowers, warm water to swim in, family, and a sunset that tells you you're already in heaven. It's good to be here and there at the same time and at home and with my daughter. It's good to take the time to visit the folks and go for a swim.

Thanks, mom and dad.


  1. Beautiful blessing Sandy .. :) Thank you!

  2. Sandy, thanks for checking out my blog. I am sorry I don't write the BYBS until later in the day. I should probably do better. Have a fantastic day!

    Don't forget about the hammock, as long as there's a lazy summer day nearby!
