Our minds get cluttered, our hearts grow weary and sometimes bitter, and our focus becomes so blurred that we can no longer see the beauty that is right in front of us.
I certainly have had my seasons of blurred vision and those seasons are hard, but by the grace of God, I come out of them with much clearer vision. I see my Savior in all His glory and then I begin to see all of the beauty in His creation that surrounds me daily; the beauty that I often miss in the hustle and bustle of day to day life sometimes.
Oh, how I am grateful for the seasons in which He allows me to see and take it all in.
I mean, look at them. They are this amazing shade of red. And I absolutely love them paired with that yellow.
I love it! Can't you just see a dresser painted this color? Or even a pair of ballet slip on shoes! I would totally wear those!
You might be thinking, "potatoes, really?" Yes, really! Look at the texture of all of these veggies. I love the knots in the potatoes and that shade of plum, red and even pink in them. I have always loved the color of avocados and the rough, bumpy texture of their skin is truly beautiful. And we can't forget the sweet potato and it's lovely orange. Even better, when you slice these veggies open, their colors come to life even more!
These make me think of a good, warm woven knit blanket.
I love how God not just made delicious, healthy food for us to eat, but he made them beautiful and pleasing to the eye as well.
I seriously want to paint and make something when I stop and truly look at my surroundings. And more than that, I just want to praise and stand in awe of their Creator....amazing.
Slow down. Open your eyes. Look and take it all in. Enjoy the beauty and be inspired.
