Multitude Monday: Open Your Eyes

I so often spend my life racing from one thing to the next or even worse, totally wasting it by sitting in front of a screen.  There are so many precious moments than can be missed just by being unobservant.  And yet, as I follow the Lord and wish to spend time with him daily, I most often find him in those little things. 

His hand is on the small, unnoticed details.

I want to live my life to the fullest and squeeze the last little bit out of it.  Yet, many times I miss things simply because I'm too distracted to notice.  

I've been working at opening up my mind and really seeing the beauty in little things around me. 

It's there.  You just have to look. 

There are such beautiful little intricasies in life that bring joy and enrichment. 

Let's take time to stop long enough to notice them and then remember to thank the Lord for His hand in the little details.

This week I'm thankful for blessings #1961-1970
