Allow Life To Unfold

Sometimes we are wise to focus on the beauty in our lives, and allow all else to fade into the background.

Often the things we tend to dwell on aren’t all that important in the big scheme of things.

We will all encounter rough patches along the road we travel. We might hit a bump or skid on the gravel. We must pick ourselves up and continue. We should be grateful we can pick up and continue.

Instead of worrying about the things in your life that are not going according to your plan, remember you have no way of knowing the full scope of life. Let it play out in its own timing. Find the good in your situation.

Mute the background. Let beauty rise to the surface.

Know your life is beautiful.

Know you are blessed.

Living in the Gap

March 3, 2012 – From sun to gloom

Large and bright, it smiled upon me. Its brilliance faded as grey clouds moved in from each side. The clouds opened and swallowed it whole, casting a shadow on the city.

    • Yes, I do know a few of those. As much as I try to accept all for who they are, there are also some I keep at a distance strictly because I KNOW who they are.

  1. Suzi, you and I have such a similar approach and outlook on life….

    “Instead of worrying about the things in your life that are not going according to your plan, remember you have no way of knowing the full scope of life. Let it play out in its own timing. Find the good in your situation.”

    I so agree with that. We can’t always see the bigger picture sometimes, therefore we have to allow life to take us where we need to go; trusting that our life is playing out in it’s own perfect timing. And walk in faith.

    Thank you for sharing this reminder, my friend.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    P.S. lovely photo of the rose!

  2. Yes! We cannot know the future — nor can we understand much about the present. Nevertheless, we must place our trust in One who does, knowing that we’re loved immensely and perfectly!

  3. Sometimes it’s too easy to get sidetracked in the minutiae of smallness. I did that this week – until a blogger friend threw out a few comments that put it all back into perspective.

    It ain’t about small things… 😀

  4. “Mute the background. Let beauty rise to the surface.” This is such a fabulous line. We never know what circumstance God is using to refine us. Wonderful post.

  5. I couldn’t agree more. Worrying about the silly stuff takes away from all that is good. It’s kind of like when I have a headache – it hurts worse when I dwell on how bad it hurts.
