the unseen

cactii babies in the morning light...
how beautiful is that?
but what i didn't see is the iridescent light on the web!
i couldn't see the blues, the pinks, yellows!
in fact i didn't see the web at all when i took this photo
it wasn't until later that i was overwhelmed
to see such simple beauty

we often don't see the unseen as we should
beauty is everywhere around us
we need eyes to see it
our eyes get dim, our hearts get cold, our motion gets routine

i believe if we could see the world as God sees it 
we would be overwhelmed!
the colors would be brilliantly placed everywhere
the light would be sparkling...
on the water, on the leaves, on the trees, on the heads of children
and if we saw it our hearts would melt in worship
it would
we would melt
we would bend of knees 
in gratitude and praise to the One who made it all

open our eyes Lord
we need to see as You do...
