101 Lovely Things
to Think About

Quiet, calming thoughts are always needed especially in Covid-Pandemic-Time.

Please copy, paste, keep and/or share any or all of this page. Add another thought. Be blessed and be a blessing! 

BTW: Many years ago I wrote this and other encouragement cards for Women's Ministry in my church.  101 Lovely Things was the most requested card.
Philippians 4:8-9:
Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things. And the God of peace will be in you. 
 
Moonlight on the water * a bird building its nest * a field of lavender * new puppies * geese flying south in formation * sunrise after a storm * no traffic * finally getting to the light at the end of the tunnel * (and it isn’t an oncoming train!) * legible handwriting * cooing doves * a shooting star * the beach at sunset * finding the marbles you thought you lost were right where you left them * feeling the wind in your hair * hearing the meadowlark’s call * the sound of fog moving * twilight * the first snowfall * helping out your best friend * more money than month * a butterfly resting in the sun * a handful of yellow daisies * a fiddler crab’s trail * a bubble bath * the smell of chocolate * bread baking on a winter’s day * the smile of someone who loves you * crocus pushing through the snow * the warmth and crackle of a camp fire * having enough room in your closet * swinging on a tire swing * a long lunch with an old friend * finishing the race * watching a small boy with his dog * the prize in a box of Cracker Jacks * the aurora borealis * hearing someone say, “Good for you!” * email from a friend * your very first pay check * nice neighbors * discovering who the “they” is who say everything * a long green valley with a river running through it * the smell of the earth after a spring shower * a high stepping marching band * little girls skipping rope * dessert for breakfast * listening to your kind of music and not having to turn it down * the sound of surf at dusk * watching the clouds float by * a parking space reserved for you wherever and whenever you need it * laughing best, last and always * walking through autumn leaves * having flowers arrive for no special reason * sitting by a water fall * snuggling in a quilt * bunny slippers * hand painted porcelain * swans gliding on the water * reservations at a five-star restaurant * front row center, theater of your choice * understanding and moving on * finishing the job * no lines in the supermarket, at the toll booth or on your face * a talking scale that says, “Perfect, just perfect” * Problem? What problem? * your favorite color * knowing and liking yourself * dreams realized * finding the missing piece of the puzzle when you weren’t looking for it * rubbing a pussy willow against your cheek * one purple balloon * two red kites * three tiny turtles * four baby chicks * five golden rings * six silly sheep (Say that three times fast!) * Visiting Narnia when you’re all grown up * walking through an herb garden * lily of the valley pressed in the pages of a book * buttercups at the roadside * chipmunks scampering to gather seeds * Potpourri and pomander balls * a shady garden path edged with white flowers * a handmade gift from a friend * the sun shining through lace curtains * walking bare foot on new carpet * hot soup on a cold day * cold lemonade on a hot day * knowing someone is praying for you * a candle in the window * believing God loves you * moving forward, not looking back * no more fear * living peace filled * no more sighing * no more crying * expectantly hoping for Goodness.

I've written quite a few Encouragements in my life.
My 2021 plan is to share them with you so that you can pass them along.
