we are surrounded by it – really.
sometimes it’s hard to see.
buried in laundry, dishes, housework -beauty?
these really are blessings – thank God we have clothes to wear, dishes to eat on, and a home to live in
-i’ve heard/read that a million times – so it’s kinda lost it’s power for me,
even though i know it is true.
more empowering for me though, is that mothering, and cleaning up after and raising up these precious children is the most beautiful thing i think i can possibly be given to do!
the fact that it is so fleeting,
shines a new light on the matter…
i can take this gift and complain about it and stomp my feet and pout at the work involved.
or i can stop, enjoy the moments and choose to see the beauty.
i would hate to have missed it.
it will be over one day.
at least this thick, loud, chaotic part will be over – and then what?
will i have done a good job?
i have spent the last few years numb to the mess, noise, discomfort, fighting, disobedience.
now i SEE that the beauty lies in every detail; pain or joy.
bringing a child from pain or sadness to peace through L♡VE
how beautiful is that?
if i am numb to the pain i am then numb to all of it.
beauty is in everything.
when we choose to see, we find it’s been right under our noses.
have an amazing week friends!
