Beauty around us
The stone that the builders rejected has now become the cornerstone. This is the Lord’s doing, and it is wonderful to see. This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:22-24
There is so much beauty around each of us. Beauty in the landscape. Beauty in the friendships. Beauty in neighborhoods. Beauty all around. Yet so often all we see is the mess. We see the difficulties of relationships. The annoyance of the actions of others. The frustrations of life. But if we are able to pause. To be still. Reflect on God's love. Then, we are able to see the beauty. Beauty in our circumstances. Beauty in the grace given. Beauty in the love that never ends. Because the Lord's doing, it is wonderful to see! He loved us from the beginning. It never changed and will not ever change. His love endures forever. If he can love us in are mess, surely, we can love others in whatever circumstances.
