Do 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.
