It's been raining here at my house for days and days. Even when I wasn't home it was raining. We've had everything from storms to drizzle. Constant drizzle to tornado warnings.
Yesterday my daughter came out of her room and growled when she looked out the kitchen window. "See, this is why I hate winter! It's so dark and gray. It's awful." I know what she's talking about. Often the winter--the dark days become like a Beast in our lives, making it hard to see anything else. Thankfully, later that day God reminded me of something I need reminding of often...
My youngest son stepped outside for something and came running back in to tell me to come see.
Beauty had flooded the sky.
Often we're so focused on the Beast that we miss seeing the Beauty.
After snapping a few pictures (okay, lots of pictures), I turned around to go back to the house. This is what I saw...
More beauty, even if this picture doesn't show it well.
A double rainbow.
What a reminder that there's beauty all around us. Even on dark days full of storms and the constant dripping of drizzle.
Sometimes we just need to step to where we can see and then look around.
Beauty is there, if we'll just look.
So tell me, what's something beautiful you've seen lately?~*~*~*~
