A rose bush: Do you see the beauty of the roses or the pain of the thorns?
A mountain: Do you see the adventure that awaits or the daunting task of the climb?
A snowfall: Do you marvel at the formation of white powder in the sky and crisp calm that comes or just the work you have to do to clear the sidewalk?
A hiccup in your plan: Do you see an opportunity for the Holy Spirit to show up and work or the glaring inconvenience?
Do you see what I'm getting at? Often times the beauty around is also has some danger. Just about everything gives us an opportunity to flex our PERSPECTIVE muscle. We get to CHOOSE which we will focus on - the beauty or the danger.
Choose beauty today, friends. Share that beauty with someone else so a positive perspective can ripple through our communities.
Whoever diligently seeks good seeks favor,
but evil comes to him who searches for it.
