So, last week I talked about anchoring back…about my amble through the woods and coming back to the sound of the water to anchor back into the time and space I was in.
As I sat there, listening to the sound of the flowing water and anchoring myself back to the present moment a few weeks ago, I got my phone out and took the picture I posted last week. I got really close to the water to take the picture….because when you got a little further out from that particular picture, you could see some pretty nasty scuzz in the water.
I was thinking about that picture as I walked back to my car that afternoon…about the ways we find grounding and peace even when our surroundings might have a little nasty scuzz in addition to that beauty. The reality is, our life has both, right? There’s a chance we might never have a picture that is simply beautiful without any extra heartache. But, my friends, even with that extra scuzz in the water, that beauty was still there shining through.
So perhaps this week we acknowledge the scuzz, but in that acknowledgement we simultaneously turn our focus a little more on to the beauty.
I hope you have a beautiful week, my friends.
