Beautiful Evening Sunset

June 20, 2014

A couple of nights ago we were treated with a beautiful and peaceful sunset. It came at the end of a day filled with lots of grey and fog and reminded me once again of how every color is beautiful in different ways. I am learning this lessen more and more each day that if we look for beauty in the "quiet" and "simple" moments we will find it. Sometimes (as with yesterday - a day filled with unexpected doctors appointments, learning that I have a tooth infection (ouch!!), the news that I need to have that tooth removed (boo!!), issues with insurance over a particular medicine that has been helping my stomach, etc.)it takes a lot of effort to do so. But here is the the thing that I am learning more and more: if you look you can find it. There was incredible beauty yesterday despite the "yucky" things including amazing parents who are always encouraging in this journey, friends who text at just the right time, prayers of thousands of people for my health, a kind dentist who gave up his lunch break to fit me in, a pharmacist who went above and beyond his job to try and help, and the list goes on and on and on. There is generous and amazing beauty in what many people consider ordinary or "everyday events" and as I search to see them I am astounded at the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living (psalm 27). Next week I can't wait to share with y'all how I am finding this more and more, where my "new" name for my etsy shop came from, and the meaning behind the "newish" slogan for the blog and the shop. I hope you enjoy these pictures sweet friends and I hope today and this weekend brings lots of moments to "delight in the beauty of ordinary". (Yes, that is the official slogan *smiles*)
