Because it matters... I daily tend to the small things.
I look around the room.
Needs attention.. bad.
There's this bouquet; this one...
One where in the original picking I intentionally left one rumpled flower to keep in mind the gentle reminder...
Now, it too needs attention. Bad.
I remove most of the ugly and there it sat.
Soon, even more ugly piled high around it. Dishes of the day! Dirty and dried on...
I intentionally left the bouquet sit there... not the dishes... for the week.
For a reason...
In the midst of all the busy and the ordinary and the chaos and the ugly.. there needs to be a reminder of constant grace.
A vase of flowers, even though there ain't much left of them in and of themselves... they provided for me a reminder, still, to always see the beauty in hard times and places.
Today - a new and fresh cut vase of flowers stands proud!
