Maybe it’s because I’ve spent so much time behind a camera that I’ve learned to look for the little things along the way that are beautiful. A camera slows me down and makes me truly think about the things that surround me. I look for the simple things that people would ordinarily walk past and never notice.
Philippians 4:8 says, ,”Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
“He has made everything beautiful in its time.” – Ecclesiastes 3:11
There are ugly things in this life. They have a way of getting in our faces without being invited. Seeing the beauty doesn’t mean that we don’t acknowledge the bad things we have to face, but it sure makes every day better if we can find the beauty in it.
