As we are stuck in a not so pretty season of forlorn yet-to-be-raked yards, stumpy looking trees and browning grass, waiting to be renewed by winter's snow, lets look for the lasting beauty that we know is all around us! Right now we just might have to look a little closer for it, which makes it all the more enjoyable when we do.
Rebekah and I walked the grounds of the farm that we occasionally work at yesterday and found just that!
We had a great time running through rows of blueberry bushes and snapping pictures!
There are so many things waiting to burst with color and flavor if we will just look for it! This is not only true in what we can see in God's beauty that He shows us through nature, but also in people's lives.
We can show God's love by caring for them- taking the time to listen and giving them multiple chances to prove their true worth! There are so many who could do so much for the Kingdom if only they were not looked down upon! Take time for people, tell them how much God cares for them, that they are worth so much more than they are told. We have no idea how far that can take a person! Invest in the hidden beauty! And remember that hidden does not mean nonexistent, it means lost or unseen- it needs to be brought out- to be recognized!

Hope you enjoyed scrolling through our walk. :)
I can't wait to share our sermon from today with you all! It will probably not get published till
late- baby sitting all day.
Oh, and I thought that this poem went along so very well- enjoy!
