God so often reveals Himself to us in the ordinary day-to-day experiences of life. Yet we miss Him. These entries are to encourage us to look for Him, find Him, and worship Him. It's my prayer that my ordinary moments would spur you to look for your own.
"What He ordains for us each moment is what is most holy, best, and most divine for us." Jean-Pierre de Caussade

A Cup Overflowing, 621-640
Every time you feel in God's creatures something pleasing and attractive, do not let your attention be arrested by them alone, but, passing them by, transfer your thought to God and say:
"O my God, if Thy creations are so full of beauty, delight and joy, how infinitely more full of beauty, delight and joy art Thou Thyself, Creator of all!
Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain
My search for True Beauty continues:
#621 lavender morning skies
#622 sound of my heart beat -- and my personal rhythm of life
#623 girl's day spent with Adrianne
#624 races and crossing the finish line -- regardless of what position we finish, "We win!"
And we did!
#625 carpet of petals after a storm
#626 early Saturday morning and the love and grace God showers upon me
#627 waking of creation: God calls the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting (Ps. 50:1)
#628 seeing God present through His people even, especially, in the wake of violence and tragedy -- the Boston Marathon bombing
#629 the feel and earthy smell of dirt
#630 fresh vegetables
#631 joy in the morning sun
#632 kale smoothies and thoughts of green flowing through my veins
#633 Spring centerpieces: beet stems and baby rabbits
#634 impromptu dinner partners ... and stories
Dozier and Dot Blackstock
#635 celebrating baby brothers
I do love these "boys" so much!
#636 wild turkeys
#637 white cows dotted midst blooming dogwoods
#638 sounds of raindrops on a tin roof
#639 meeting and watching the potter himself: Cody Troutman
#640 lizards in hotel rooms and learning to marvel rather than scream
