Bits of Beauty
The ice frozen on the remains of the vine I grew this past summer on the side of my house was gorgeous this weekend. I almost missed this bit of beauty. But I ran to the grocery Sunday afternoon and when I hopped in the car there it was, just waiting to be discovered. It was just around the corner, literally, and it could have disappeared before I got to appreciate it.
It made me wonder how many things like this I have missed. How much have I not noticed, skipped over, or been in too much of a hurry to perceive? The list might well be lengthy.
For the last few years the message has repeatedly come to me that I need more beauty in my life. Here was beauty brought to me and I almost overlooked it. I must learn to peek around the corners.
