Charm in Alleyways

Last weekend included an outing to a nearby town where we walked pleasurably
along streets lined with lovely old houses.
Occasionally, we chose to wander through alleyways that looked particularly interesting.
As a result, I posted this photo on my facebook page with the comment,
"Never overlook the potential for charm in an alleyway."
Thinking it over some more, I would add -
"Never miss an opportunity to create some charm (or beauty) in an obscure place."
It's a lesson I want to put into practice today.

Look for the beauty;
create the beauty.

Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone--
especially to those in the family of faith.  Galatians 6:10


  1. I like the idea of creating beauty in unexpected places. Thanks for this!


    1. You're welcome, Deanna. This experience/reflection was a gentle reminder to me....

  2. I'm pretty sure I'd have to sit a spell! :)
