You are looking at drops of water on a lettuce leaf that was picked from our garden this spring. (Not a new picture) I loved the way the drops caught the light coming through the kitchen window, so I paused in the middle of washing the lettuce and ran to get my camera and hurriedly took a few pictures, then put the camera away and went back to washing lettuce.
How often do we stop and look at the little things?
I get so caught up in my life and the big things in it...Did I clean my room today? Did I get all my schoolwork done? Are the dishes and laundry done? Yes....usually. :) But perhaps we should take more time to live life...really live it, not just exsist in it.
Have you ever watched a ladybug travel across a leaf? How often do you take a moment to look out the window and enjoy the view? Have you ever walked barefoot in the grass with the morning dew still fresh upon it?
God has given us a wonderful world to live in...he created the stars in the heavens, the fish in the sea, the birds of the air, the beautiful flowers growing on the land...and this is meaningless if we don't stop and enjoy it.
I will write a newsy little post tomorrow, adding it on to the bottom of this one would destroy the ambience!
I'll leave you with one last thought....
"Take time to smell the roses."
