We often ignore the most ordinary of circumstances. They slip by our radar unless illuminated.
Sometimes it is the setting which brings the beauty to life. Have you ever been acquainted with someone but never given them much thought, then you get to know them and you see them in an entirely different light?
Down the street from me there is a lot surrounded by scraggly bushes. It looks kind of creepy, like something is hidden beyond the mass of twigs and leaves. But oh, when the roses bloom it becomes a paradise.
Maybe we live in a world that jumps between disregarding and judging , or perhaps we simply walk through this world blind to the miracles all around us.
I might never have seen the beauty of the sunset over the ocean had my husband not insisted I rise early on the morn of my fiftieth birthday. Groggy eyed and complaining I climbed from bed. The rest of the world seemed to be asleep as we crossed the silent road. We trudged through the sand. A few souls were combing the beach for shells. A few others were on balconies with coffee taking in the morning miracle. The yellows, pinks, and oranges swirled like cotton candy against the blue sky. Clouds illuminated as the sun slowly burst through. Waves lapped and crashed against the shore. Brown pelicans swooped for breakfast. My feet were grounded in the cool, damp sand while my soul soared with the morning miracle unfolding before me, what a gift!
May you experience the beauty and miracles of ordinary life.
May you watch the miracles of life unfold around you today.
May you know yourself as the miracle you are.
May you truly see the beauty of life.
May you see your own beauty.
