The Joys of Looking Closer

Budding Lilac

Multiply the beauty in your life ~ take a closer look!

Find a magnifying glass and a make a few minutes from chores! Spring is springing and even more new things will soon be bursting forth! Shed a few years and lay down in the grass again; take a closer look at whatever little thing grabs your attention and be ready to be amazed!

Here the embryonic little flowers packed into this Lilac bud are just beginning to burst into life. You can almost smell them, can't you? 

Take some time to reconnect with the many little blessings in nature; they're gifts of God's love for each of us and, thankfully, are a great help in carrying us through the daily challenges which are sure to come in the week ahead.
