"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it." ~Confucius

I think if we all practiced looking at things with our hearts and not just our eyes, we could start to find all the wonderful things God has "hidden" from us.
By "hidden" I mean things that are "hidden in plain sight", things that we overlook every day. Not just the sunrise, or sunset...but reflections, and shadows. The perfect imperfections in ourselves and those around us.
Ever notice how small children are in awe of the small things? How wonderful would our lives be if we had the wonder of children?
Take a moment each day to find the beauty of something "hidden in plain sight", and see how your life changes.

Be blessed my SparkFamily

    I certainly agree that we often miss the wonders of life---

    Each day I feed birds on my patio. There are many kinds, including Cardinals. From reading Spark comments, I have read that some people have never seen these birds. Just the daily sight of all the birds-- gives me pleasure.
    (Now, if only I could shoo away the neighbor's cats--) (smile)

    Hugs for you!

    When I was walking my dog this morning, I stopped and look at my view outside... I had that moment- I take it for granted every day, but need to regularly stop and enjoy it.
