the hubs and i recently had a conversation about how we see beauty. how we choose to see beauty. not everyone sees; not everyone chooses. we choose to look through a different lense at the same world; trying to see through the eyes of the Creator. to observe all the details of creation; to see the beauty because i know the Creator. to appreciate the minor and the unseen. to imagine and awake my soul to see all that a mountain may be; all that a aspen may give; all that a caterpillar can show me. i’m trying to pay attention, to observe beauty, to find joy.
-my oldest obviously fighting hard to control his anger
-biggest little thanking oldest for being brave when he was hurt
-hubs hearing a song and seeking out chords to learn it b/c it is worth singing and praising
-hot potato soup with lots of cheese
-spotting my favorite hot air balloon high and away early in the morning
-walking over wooden bridges
-aspen leaves all yellow
-boys all laughing in a pile
-running across a sun-crossed field
it’s all beauty and it’s all there if i seek it. in the midst of all frustrating circumstances and undue comfort; i’m trying to seek. i’m digging to find treasure in simple places, and to find joy in today. are you looking for beauty? because if you really look you will see; if you truly seek you will find joy in hidden places. where are you finding beauty and unearthing joy?
