Looking For Beautiful


I decided it was time to stop whining...


and get out into my yard and find something beautiful.


It is amazing what you find when you begin to look with an expectant heart


All these same beautiful things were escaping my notice before...


but now look at what I see.


There are beautiful pictures everywhere!


It wasn't the scenes that changed but instead it was my heart and then my perspective.


The same thing can happen to you too.  It can happen no matter what the situation.  We just have to sometimes look for it.


I am so glad I didn't miss this beautiful play of textures...


or these beautiful remains of flowers past...


or how Mama can balance...


or this beautiful delicate feather, dropped there just for me to find...


and best of all...look at the heart God made just for me!  I first saw the puddle and thought, "Oh no, another water leak"  but on closer inspection, I found a drip, drip, dripping faucet that made my heart leap for joy especially when I saw the heart!  Imagine His smile as he drew this out in the mud just for me.  He's like that you know.  He likes to give us little love notes.  If you aren't so sure about it then just try it.  Go out looking for beauty and blessing with an expectant heart.  The possibilities are limitless and God's goodness is abundant.  I promise He won't let you down.  He has hidden a little love note just for you.  Go on, it is OK.  It isn't hidden from you but hidden For you.  Go find your note.  I would be so blessed to hear about yours. 
Until Next Time
