I was taking my morning walk this morning as I usually do – with my eyes half shut. Someplace between leaving my front door and returning is where I typically wake up. This morning my point of waking up occurred when I was turning for home and noticed someone standing off the road taking a picture. I stopped to see what she was photographing. There was a beautiful tree in full blossom. This tree was so full of flowers, I don’t think there was room for even one more bloom. In the early morning light, the white blossoms practically glowed. So I went home and got my camera and took a picture, too.
Here was a piece of God’s beautiful creation that I almost walked right by. What other beauty did I miss this morning?
What a shame it is to go through our days and never even see the beauty that is around us! Today, make it a point to keep your eyes open as you go about your usual routine. Be a witness to God’s creation. Stop and take a picture. Perhaps you will inspire someone else to do the same.
This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it! (Psalm 118:24 ESV)
