|Drops of dew edge these wild strawberry leaves like rhinestones!|
"When your weeks are the busiest, I’m telling you, it’s important to notice the little things of beauty all around you. God is such an amazing Creator and His beautiful creation is a feast for the eyes and a reminder of His watch care in the smallest details of life."
Wow! Is that not so true? I've noticed that so often in this busy season of eldercare, when my mind is overloaded and there's little energy or time to spare, God will draw my attention to something beautiful He has made: dew on leaves or cobwebs; a starry night sky; a deer or a bear crossing a quiet country road; delicate, spicy-scented ferns; wild roses -- oh, there are so many lovely things to see. And every one is a reminder of the care and attention to detail on the part of our Creator God. A powerful reminder that this same God, the God of the universe, cares for every detail of our lives.
I want to note also that in my link to Sarah's blog above, I linked to this specific post: Friday Favs, where you will find some wonderful hospitality tips and some tried-and-true recipes. Sarah is a busy mom, foster mom, and pastor's wife, as well as an artist and writer, and anything she posts is well worth the read. Her practical tips in this post are a great encouragement.
Hope this quote is a blessing to you today. It surely was a blessing to me!
