This Dear Vanessa is a musing about the lens that we look through every day. Where are you today? What do you see in every moment? Take a moment to pause and slow down and muse with me.
I have realized that the lens I look through is so different now. Years ago, I let my mind wander into the “what ifs” , I spun my wheels, I made a million lists and didn’t rest until all were complete. God changed me, He refined me.
Today, I am thankful for seeing the wind flowing through the trees and notice the sparkle in the leaves. I see the birds dance across the lawn. I notice every movement and realize all of the beauty.
Gratitude is the center.
Love flows through every inch of me.
Every day I wake up and start the morning routine, and as I drive to work, I thank Him for second chances. My eyes begin to tear, and I am so full with the love I have at my center.
The laughter in a child, the beauty in everything.
How can we make gratitude at center?
Do we need to slow down to smell the roses?
Run, lists, endless items on the “to do lists”.
Is this a choice? Do you have the power to choose something different??
Our thoughts and choices we can control. Where do you choose to focus your lens today?
Remember, the power is in you.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:11
