I make it a point of looking – to take the time to see and feel my surroundings. Sometimes I am rewarded by watching as God paints the sky with glorious colors as the sun rises or sets. Sometimes it is the tiny flower budding from under the dead leaves. As I was driving home yesterday, I saw wild horses run through the prairie and a mare playing with her foal. In the morning, on this same prairie, I often see deer grazing. I find so much pleasure in these brief and fleeting moments. Sometimes, I am even lucky enough to capture these sights with my camera.
Treasures and beauty are found everywhere. Sometimes we can’t help but see them, more often we have to be purposeful in our looking.
