The Beauty of Ordinary Things

The Orchid Tree outside of Kokua Coop

Good Morning, God!

The beauty of  ordinary things is sometimes overwhelming! My camera didn’t quite capture the beauty of this tree out in back of Kokua Co-op. But I “saw” it. You have put us in a Beautiful World, God. Thank YOU!

I must say, the ordinary things of this world look even brighter after my mother’s trip to the Emergency Room on Monday. I am so thankful that we were able to leave the ER. Mom was able to go home and eat dinner in her own apartment. I’m smiling, God. After eating dinner — after that LONG DAY — she looked at me and asked, “Do you want to play a game of Scrabble?”

An ordinary game of Scrabble. What a marvelous thing that is. But, I confess, God, I wasn’t up to it!  I kissed her good night and went home to bed.

I suppose, God, that events like a FALL and Time in the ER serve to highlight the beauty and delight of the “ordinary.” It is so easy to take things and people for granted! I guess, God, that’s because it takes energy to appreciate — to focus our eyes and our hearts — on the people in our lives. Wonderful people. Thank You, God!
