Thoughts of Beauty

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:

Its loveliness increases; it will never

Pass into nothingness; but still will keep

A bower quiet for us, and a sleep

Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.

—  John Keats

"Life is but a day:

A fragile dewdrop on its perilous way

From a trees summit"

— John Keats

"I almost wish we were butterflies and liv'd but three summer days - three such days with you I could fill with more delight than fifty common years could ever contain."

— John Keats (Bright Star: Love Letters and Poems of John Keats to Fanny Brawne)

Today I am off to discover beauty in a new state as I visit Michigan for the first time. I will be speaking at the Waterford Church of Christ's ladies enrichment day tomorrow. Please join us if you live nearby!

Be sure to visit next week for a week full of romantic images and ideas from our friends Haley and Neil's wedding.
