Be Present

"each moment is holy, worth bending down, demanding attention to the layers of beauty in God's creation, urging me to be present." Joel Bock

Recently I read the above comment and it fit so well with what I was thinking. A cup of tea gives those moments to pause and breathe in the peaceful; to pay attention and notice the present; to share a story with a friend. My camera gives me the opportunity to notice the beauty of the small things, such as the blossom on my tea plant. God's creation is everywhere, even the dandelion can be beautiful when we take a closer look. Be present and breathe in the beauty of the day.
