18 May there are no accidents
I know in my heart that everything always unfolds as it should. But that certainly doesn’t mean that some days aren’t cloudy and unclear. I guess that’s when our beliefs, our faith is truly tested. It’s easy to feel hopeful when you’re basking in the warmth of the sun. It’s not so easy when you’re in the shadows; sun blotted out by inclement weather. And that’s precisely when you need hope the most.
Sometimes I make my way through a day and forget to look for the signs; the little glimmers of beauty, joy and love that make life sweet regardless of circumstances. For the most part, I use my lens to distill these little gems that are easily overlooked and that brings me clarity sometimes when I am feeling most lost. But even still, it doesn’t always come easy.
A few days ago the only thing I could do was to take off my shoes and go ground myself in the backyard (one of my little sanctuaries). I sat in the sun, felt the earth under me and the air on my skin. My new BFF followed me out and sat with me. And just then, when I wasn’t even looking for a message, there it was. I’m not sure if it’s as obvious to you, but I see doggie legs creating a perfect heart. It might be a stretch but I’ll take it.
It’s Best Shot Monday so let’s see what you captured.
