Nothing Extraordinary

Nothing extra ordinary…

A simple yellow flower along a country path where I was walking.

When I started my little mountain trek today, I was looking for extra ordinary flowers and nature scenes to photograph. The flowers weren’t much in bloom however, and I didn’t find anything that took my breath away. After walking awhile, my nephew bent down to take a close up photograph of a tiny yellow plant which I assumed was a weed. It was so small that I didn’t see it’s beauty at first.

When my nephew showed me his photo, I was in awe! I then bent down closer to try to take the same photo, which you see here. The yellow is brilliant, the shape soothing, the simplicity of it refreshing. And to think, I almost missed this!

I wonder how many times we miss hearing from God, or seeing his blessings, simply because we don’t take time to draw near?

Brene Brien writes, ” I don’t have to chase extraordinary moments to find happiness – it’s right in front of me if I’m paying attention and practicing gratitude.”

“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.” – James 4:8
