The other morning I asked my oldest to jump in and help unload the clean dishes. You never know what you’re gonna’ get when you ask for help, do you. I wasn’t shocked when she answered she didn’t want to and while I appreciate her honesty, I asked her again anyway.
Who really wants to begin a day in a negative way?
I walked away and within a few minutes time something in her changed. I could hear her humming when she called me in to see her work. She hadn’t just put the dishes away, she had made a display! With our assorted colors combined she found almost all the colors of the rainbow and stacked them up high.
She may not have noticed but I saw truth in it. God was here for a visit. One of His promises was at rest in my kitchen. When we choose to do right, we’re blessed in return.
There’s power in small moments.
How do we take the mundane and make it beautiful? Sometimes, we luck out and just fall into the flow but other times we have to make conscious choices to change our own attitude and look on the bright side of things. We have to search for our rainbow.
How often in every day life do we have the chance to turn something around but we’re too blinded by our own attitude? We’re so closed we can’t even see the promise standing in front of us. As we grow older than 8 years old this becomes a skill. We have to see it to practice the artistry of creating beauty in each moment. Small moments can make up big living! What a difference it would make if all our small moments were good moments… It was something that my little girl and me got to experience together that day.
We don’t have to wait any longer if we embrace the promise God has already given. How will you find your rainbow today, friend?
