Beauty Unfurled is a place...

       where I hope you feel inspired and encouraged.  

       In the midst of a stressful day or challenging circumstances, may this be a place where you feel REFRESHED BY THE BEAUTY OF NATURE. May the encouraging words release the burdens you are carrying and inspire you TO BREATHE, TO REST, TO DREAM.

       I am working on pairing inspirational quotes, poetry and words of encouragement with each nature photograph and painting. I really love getting to make someone's day a little brighter and I believe words have the power to make the impact that much greater.

Released to Dream

Come, My child, and sit with Me under golden branches
Come be with Me, lean on Me
And hear the whispers of My love
Hear the still, quiet melody of forest and light,

Of quaking leaves and dancing waters.
Come away with Me,
See the moonlight drip like painted glass upon the stream
Catch the exploding colors of a rainbow in your hand.
Come, discover a hidden place of wonder,
A secret place reserved for you
To dream, to hope
To be
With Me.
