Beauty in Ordinary Days

Hi Blogging Friends!
Here we are in the last week of June &Summer is in full swing for all to enjoy. Here in pics are my ordinary days in which I look for the Beauty & Blessings that God has placed there .First, as I go out for an afternoon of errands , there is always the beauty of the clouds in the Carolina Blue Sky.

I pass by this Quilting Studio many times in a week , always enjoying it's  rustic country beauty.

Stopping by the library , The colorful displays to entice summer reading are happy sights.

Flag flying outside library, I love the beautiful American Flag; Always reminds me of the blessing of Freedom.

 Stopped by Diary Queen, the beauty of Ice cream . lol

Went double couponing at the Harris Teeter Store. Beautiful grocery store bouquets.

Some beautiful blossoms in my yard.

 Cute design on bottle of lemonade held by my beautiful granddaughter.

Two beautiful girls .Daughter & granddaughter.

I will leave you this wonderful Bible verse from Psalm 118:1 ,
"Give thanks to the Lord ,for He is good; His love endures forever."

And a video with  David  Crowder  that beautifully expresses this truth .
