Into the middle of a ho hum afternoon, a smile peeks through like a beam from cloudy sky. A little light of silver and blue jewel sparkling from a Target shelf of ordinary. Like Alice, I think I see a large-lettered note attached: Take Me Home. This one’s for you… It seems such a tiny extravagance, a spot of beauty and joy for my kitchen, a diminutive touch of luminescent (liquid soap) charm for a coming guest — so I do!
And placing it next to my snowy swiss-dotted pitcher, a song of praise for such simple pleasures wings up inside me… color dances!
How spirit-lifting color can be — this azure elegance against white, like blue that chases wooly white clouds across the heavens or wavelets racing foamy white lace to the shores…
Or a plate of vine-picked tomatoes fresh from a friend’s garden… a bonus to watering while the family’s away!
So that I find the Lord taking my hands to skip, dad to daughter, to a song of simple… mm, frabjous!… delicious delights.
For you, He smiles.
Something simple and frabjous crept unexpected fun into your life lately?
