Looking Past the Cracks

0302180658Do you see that?

It’s a beautiful sunrise that I enjoyed on my return trip from doing chores this morning.  I love the colors.  There was a crispness in the air that made me aware that spring is just around the corner.  Birds were chirping and there was a promise of nice temperatures today.

But do you know what I was focusing on while all that beauty surrounded me?

That crack in the windshield.  I just noticed it for the first time yesterday and it has already spread.

Unfortunately, it seems that I spend a lot more time looking at the crack in most everything around me.  Nothing can ever be perfect and I have never before been a glass half empty kind of person.

I am so glad that our God doesn’t focus on our flaws.  He only sees the good in us and encourages our given strengths.  “…for I am fearfully and wonderfully made…” Psalm 139:14.

My prayer for today is that we can learn to look past the crack and soak in all the beauty in our world.
