Letting the unexpected in.


Thinking back over last night reminded me of our sisters trip we took.

My Mother in law was having a birthday and I wanted to do something special for her.

How could I when my kitchen was covered in sheet rock dust and half painted?

Who does that?

We do.

We removed the ladder and saws, we dusted most of the sheet rock powder and we hung balloons.

Lots of pink fluffy balloons with curly white streamers.

So many in fact, I think no one even noticed that above their heads hung unpainted sheet rock.

I mean like...who cares when there is cake right?

As I watched my family eat and celebrate life, I got it!

It's what it's all about.

If we take the time to see past that locked door....

And really look deep inside to what matters....

That's where you find where all the blessings are hidden.


I'm finding the beauty.




I hope you take time today to stop and find the beauty that surrounds you.

It's there.. I promise.

It's among that laundry needing to be folded on your couch.

Thank you Lord for family.

It's among those four office walls.

Thank you Lord for providing.

It's among that supper waiting to be cooked.

Thank you Lord for the food we eat.

It's here on my screen.

Thank you Lord for my blog friends so sweet.
