Sometimes we are blessed with little bits of beauty that we walk past and never think about. Today a ran into one of those. But I had to stop.
Rachael and Michael's house has a big corner of the living room that is all window. It is the front corner, facing the street and also facing east. When I got up to send Michael off to work this morning it was dark. Well, not really dark dark, but only dim and gray.
I made his coffee, got his "Bagelful" ready for the microwave, and packed his lunch. (Lazy Rachael is off today and stayed in bed! :-) ) I also fixed myself some breakfast. He left.
When I had finished eating I got myself another cup of coffee and headed back to my room. As I came down the short hall I was hit with a blaze of sunlight. It was streaming through the trees off the reservoir and sparkling all across our living room. It was so bright it reflected off Rachael's wall of photographs.
I had to stand just a couple minutes and enjoy it. God didn't have to make such a beautiful world!
