#WalkItOut Podcast 072: Ruth Chou Simons
Where have you found beauty today? To be truthful, I have been in the house all day. I’m a homeschooling mom and have been homeschooling all morning. I’ve snuck away this afternoon to get recording time, and for me, beauty was found this morning when I was headed down the street taking my dog for a walk. There were bunnies running around the neighborhood, the air was cool, the weather perfect, there’s flowers that my husband planted on the front porch — that was a beautiful moment. But then later in the day, I was sitting at the breakfast nook at the table that has been torn up with use watching my twelve-year-old daughter work on her grammar workbook and I thought, this is beauty. This is a beautiful moment.
I think so many times in life we forget to pause and enjoy the beauty around us. There was beauty when I was cutting up bell peppers for the chili that I’m making tonight. As I’m looking at this bell pepper that I probably bought for ninty-nine cents, the beauty of the bell pepper. Just realizing that all around is beauty.
We’re going to be talking about discovering the beauty around us today with my guest, Ruth Chou Simons. Ruth and I have known each other for a while, and I have been a fan of her art for forever. She creates beautiful pieces of artwork, stationery, and a new planner. She really captures the beauty all around and is able to put it in print for us to enjoy as well. As we chat today, you’ll learn how to be able to look around you and see the beauty in your everyday life, and to be able to see God at work in that beauty.
I just know that you are going to enjoy my conversation with Ruth. I know you will be blessed! You can listen above or on iTunes! I’d love it if you share this with your friends!
