Yesterday was so beautiful here. Cold, but sunny and a sunset that was out of this world. I stood in amazement at my Creator, how he could create such vivid colors and light. While I tried to capture it on film, I knew there was no possible way. Often I find that God's beauty overwhelms me. To think He made that sunset for my pleasure!
This morning I woke up to heavy, freezing fog. It's been cold here, but sunny, so this morning was a bit shocking. Yet, there was beauty in the morning as well. Things I would have normally not seen were highlighted with frost. There truly is beauty all around, but sometimes you have to look at things in a different light. While there were brilliant colors and light in the sunset, the beauty of the morning stood out due to the dullness, and lack of light.
A thought from Ann this morning~
So what if we really paid attention
and nickel-and-dimed life away
on afternoon tag by the cedars.
A string of bare toes with a stack of old books.
This one, lone bowl filling with morning light.
Day after, day, shelling out slow mindfulness
on whatnot's of amazing grace,
collecting pieces of God-glory.
This buying a bit of medicine
that cures ADD of the soul.
I love the part about 'shelling out slow mindfulness of whatnot's of amazing grace' !
I'm taking time today to slow down and savor the moments, being appreciative, and seeing the beauty and the joy in the "everyday-ness" of life.
I am so blessed~
