Beauty is a Gift of God

January 4, 2008

A woman on her way to work one chilly, overcast winter morning was startled to see a patch of pansies in bloom. Their glorious purple and yellow hues were a stark contrast to the cloudy skies. Her mood instantly brightened. Those delicate flowers reminded her that there is always hope, even on the gloomiest days and in the darkest of times.


When you take your eyes off your problems – even for a moment – you often find that God has placed something glorious in your path to cheer you on your way.

What can you see in your path that brightens your day today?

    The thought that when I go home, my little son will run like whirlwind to me only to throw a fierce hug around my neck.

    Ah, that certainly brighten any darkness in my life.

    I think all mothers who reads your comment here would share your sentiments on this, Elviza.
