The Beauty in the Ordinary
How often do we go through an entire day not seeing the good that God gives us. There is so much beauty in the ordinary every day. Yet, we miss it. Do we not even recognize it? Perhaps we take it for granted? If this is the case we certainly fail to thank Him for it don't we. This is where I find the ordinary every day beauty:
In a young child's smile, in a babies coo, the birds chirping, the sun shining, the breeze blowing, the ocean roaring, the flowers blooming, the rain falling. The list is immeasurable. Perhaps this is where we start, right here today. Lets be more intentional to see the good, maybe then the bad will not overwhelm us so much. Don't forget when you see it to thank our amazing God for it.
“You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you,and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.” (Isaiah 55:12)
Happy Summer to you.
