A Beautiful Reminder

There they were. One lonely cluster of bright white beauty. Almost hidden in the midst of the wild grasses. Just barely poking their delicate faces above the stifling, surrounding green which threatened to envelope.

A reminder of how God is so gracious in allowing His children to see lovely glimpses of His love and creativity. Like this beautiful bunch of pure, white flowers growing strongly in the midst of tall wild grasses.

And as I look at this beautiful bouquet now displayed on our kitchen table, I find myself being reminded by the Spirit to look purposefully for God's beauty in the midst of the mundane. Because it's always there. It may be small, and it's most likely stifled by worries or concerns or routine. But by pushing past and peeling back the lids of the temporal eyes, it will be seen. Beautiful and gracious. Strong and pure. Always there, just waiting to be embraced and appreciated.

Thank you, Father.
