They spread forth life like the sun spreads light. Beauty reaching up and reaching out. Spreading underneath the ground, hidden, unnoticed. Pure, green, vibrant. Touching the very air we breathe.
Make me like a tree. Spreading love, reaching up and out, beneath, unnoticed, touching and cleansing the air around me.

I love watching my sister perform in dressage shows with her horse. It’s beautiful, artful and graceful. I don’t understand all the moves and the complex steps and lead changes and all.. but even to my ignorant eyes a girl and horse performing dressage is beautiful.
Notice in the picture above – no feet touching! That is dancing… or is it soaring?
I was so proud of my sister and her horse..! She was in two shows and got first place in the first and third in the second!
I love details.. I love the tiny lines, the tiny specks, the intense color. Things you have to look at really closely to notice.. beauty waiting to be seen. To stop and take that second look, to study a little more closely. I think God loves detail.. I think he makes it so that we don’t just pass by and glance at his creation but actually stop for a moment to really look at it. To really enjoy it. If you’re not looking for it, you’ll miss it. If you’re focused on things you need to do, places to go, problems weighing you down and just glance at the world around you.. you won’t see it. I think he wants us to search it out. To seek it. And that’s why he hides it. He wants us to take the focus off of ourselves and problems and such, and focus on beauty.. His creation.. singing it’s praises to their Maker.
