Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

Do you see beauty in
the commonplace?

Those scenes or things in nature
most often overlooked by most.

I have a habit of taking photos
many people would not even think
worthy enough to photograph,
or so I have been told many times.

The flower above, upon close inspection,
appears, at least to me,
absolutely gorgeous.
Is it a rare flower found only
in a certain out-of-the-way, exotic place?

Some ignore…
some only look to avoid, or eliminate
some look and appreciate at a distance,
some look closely and see the gift for what it is,
and some look beyond the gift and see the Giver.

Beauty in the commonplace defines 'true beauty'.

Thanks for the reminder to enlarge our focus to find what God finds beautiful...that which is ordinary!
