Simply Neutrals #31




Hello dear friends, it's time again for our Simply Neutrals party, where we gather to share our love for neutral coloured beauty, which can bring us such beautiful peace and serenity.

Today I'm sharing with you a photo I took recently on a walk. I'm sharing this because first of all I love the neutral tones in winter, and I'm always in awe of the beauty of nature and her rebirth we see every year after the cold and dark days of winter. But this holds meaning to me at a deeper level at this stage of my life.

And the feature of last week that I'd like to share with you, I chose because it too holds this meaning to me. Dear Marie of Lost Bird Studio shared two gorgeous journals she is working on.

The second one, on the right page it says:

"I saw an angle in the stone and carved to set it free."

At the moment I'm on a spiritual journey, trying to be set free from certain dogma's that kind of hold me stuck in stone. And by focusing on the Lord, I feel like I'm being set free from that stone. And I'm feeling such peace and serenity in my heart.

So, to me both the path in that rebirth of mother nature from winter into spring, and the angle being set free from the stone, it just resonated with me this week on a deep spiritual level.

Marie, if you like you can take this button:

(which can be found in the sidebar of my blog)

3) Link ups to both new and older blog posts are welcome.
Of course it would be nice if you link up to a new or recent blog post, but if there is something from the archives you'd really want to link up here, then please feel welcome to do so.

4) You can link up from your blog, but if you do not have a blog but would love to link up from your instagram or other social media account, that's perfectly fine too.
Beware though, that may be not everyone can come visit and/or leave you a comment there.

5) Please take time to visit some of the other link ups and send them some love.
