You Are


You are my sunrise

you are the moon

you are the wispy clouds in a sky of blue


You are my sunset

you are the stars

you’re where my dreams fly when they traverse afar

Fire in the Sky

Sky on fire

a new day dawns

burning with possibilities

Each morning when I arrive at work and pull into my space in the upper level of the parking ramp, I get to watch just as the sun comes up.  Even amidst the concrete and all of the other uninspiring man-made objects of the landscape before me, its beauty takes my breath away…


Wishing you beautiful and breathtaking moments today…

And for those of you here with me in the US, I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving too!

“We are mosaics-

pieces of light, love, history, stars-

glued together

with magic and music and words.”

~ Anita Krizzan


I came across the above quote the other day while out shopping with my daughter and granddaughter and it brought tears to my eyes.  I don’t know why, but it just really struck a chord.

I’ve been running a bit on empty these days, working at two different jobs and only having one day off per week.  But I have found a few moments here and there along the way to fill my tank.  Coming across this quote was one of them, it stopped me right in my tracks  – I don’t ever want to get so busy that I lose sight of what a miraculous gift life truly is…  Every. Single. Breath…

Wishing you moments of beauty, awareness and discovery as you go through this day…

This Golden Road


Freshly fallen leaves crunch beneath my feet

arousing that delightful autumn scent

the sun is warm, the air cool and crisp

my heart is merry and my senses come alive

as I mosey along this golden road

Autumn’s Confetti


At the peak of their beauty, the trees threw a party

in celebration of a year teeming with life, growth and beauty


All of nature was invited to attend the glorious spectacle of vibrant color

as the trees took center stage


But when the wind arrived, gusting in, as the wind tends to do

the party was suddenly over


leaving behind

autumn’s colorful confetti

That darn wind, blowing all of the beautiful leaves off the trees!  But I have to admit, the leaves look sorta pretty on the ground too – like confetti!  😊


There is still lots of beautiful fall color in my area, and I’ve been enjoying autumn’s party.  But we have snow in the forecast for tomorrow.   Okay, who invited snow?  Snow is NOT invited to the party – no admittance until after October!  Sigh… autumn is much too short a season…


Let us seize the day… and make it beautiful!

Change is in the Air


Change is in the air

new adventures around the bend

Beauty awaits


© Julie Rehnelt 2017


Beauty was definitely awaiting around this bend in the form of the lovely falls in my last post.  But aside from all of the beautiful colors of autumn and the changing of the seasons, change is also in the air for me as I start a new job tomorrow.  Hopefully a bit of beauty awaits me there too.  It will certainly be a new adventure, as I haven’t worked since 2010.  I’m nervous and excited as I look forward to learning some new skills, meeting new people, and making a bit of extra money in the process.  There’s beauty to be found in all those things – although they’re not necessarily things we usually associate beauty with, they can be.  It’s all about our perspective, right?

May all life’s changes be filled with a bit of beauty and adventure!

Many blessings to all of you in the coming week…
