Beauty Where I Find It

The secret to contentment and joy?

Find beauty every single day. (And not just in the faces of your babies - they're freebies.)

Rest your eyes on it for a while.

Sometimes the beauty is obvious.

Other times, it waits to be plucked up like a bloom in the midst of the disorganized chaos of my dresser top.

I wonder sometimes what causes me to notice these random acts of beauty. It wasn't always this way. I didn't always notice.

What I know for sure is that this is one of the ways that God speaks to me. He has opened my eyes to the everyday things around me.

What I know for sure is that I am so thankful.
