One thing I have asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in his temple. (Psalm 12:4)
When life gets ugly I try to take time to look for the beauty. It is always there…somewhere.
It might be in the sky. My mom taught me a long time ago to always look up. Physically lift my head. The tops of buildings are often the prettiest parts of them. Clouds and trees can be majestic, awe-inspiring.
Beauty is found in many simple places, like a smile on the face of a friend or stranger.
There is beauty in a unique shape or color of fungus in the drab and rotting leaves. Even in the dead and rotting leaves new life grows.
Beauty speaks of hope. There is always hope. Sometimes they are harder to find than others…but if we look for them we can see them.
Where do you find beauty? Do you have a favorite place to just be, somewhere you can more easily find beauty? Or is it a sound? Perhaps you find it in a taste, touch or smell? Please take a moment to find some beauty today. Please share. I love to hear from you!
