Treading Lightly


I have had a phrase repeat its self in my head this week...
It is this Hold lightly your blessings...


It was in my morning reading a few days ago, in a book of daily devotions by the inspirational Joni Eareckson. A secret sister from church gave me the book years ago, and recently I picked it up again and have thoroughly enjoyed it's wisdom.

Blessings are exactly that, they are gifts to us, and we value them by holding them lightly...not in a clenched hand, that could easily crush their intrinsic beauty,
rather in an open hand regarding their fleeting,precious worth.
Delicate treasures are these blessings in my life....
numerous and fragile like the leaves scattered across my front lawn, able to be separated at any given moment.

photos show tangible blessings, hearts hold intangible ones...


"He who binds himself to joy, does the winged life destroy;but he who kisses the joy as it flies lives in eternity's sunrise. " (William Blake)


  1. Lovely photos and words, Lucy. Hope your day is blessed. Susan

  2. Hello Lucy,
    I like the picture with the hills and the grey sky, so much. Lovely!
    I wish you a nice day,

  3. Your view always amazes me, Lucy. It sounds like you are loving and appreciating these Autumn days very much. : )



thank you and blessings for words from your heart...
