Every one has their morning rituals. Mine include the normal absolutions like showering, brushing my teeth and getting dressed. One of my quirks is the morning run to QuikTrip to start the day with a large diet Coke. While some people start their day with a cup of coffee, I just cannot stand the taste (much to my wife’s amusement).
So, this morning is like all others and as I head out the door, I notice that the rains from last evening have left a little gift on the shrubs around our front door. The spider webs that cross through these shrubs are coated with these tiny rain drops. With the morning light hitting them, it is as if some one had draped them with jewels.
Contemplating this on my drive, I realize that what I have just seen is a microcosm of the world around us. There is much beauty to behold if we will just take the time to look. Our creator has blessed us with many things, from the jewels on a spider web to the spectacular sunrise, do we take the time to see?
