Five Minute Friday: Look

I want to see them. I really do. I know they are all around me, but for one reason or another, I am blind to their beauty.

Often times I have to remind myself to look.

I believe that there are blessings, just waiting to be uncovered. Heavenly gifts scattered all along the path of our journey. Is it that I don’t see them? Is it that I don’t recognize them for what they are? Maybe I expect them to arrive in a different package?

No matter the reason, I want to see all of the blessings whether they are raining down on my head or planted beneath my feet.

The prompt today immediately made me think of this picture. Were you just to glance at it, you would see an eye. But if you really look into the eye you will see the reflection of what the eye is seeing.

I know that life is so busy, but today, I want to abandon the urge to glance and be intentional about looking for the blessings.

I am a part of the Five Minute Friday community. You can be too. Here’s how…
Now, set your timer, clear your head, for five minutes to just write without worrying if itโ€™s just right or not.

1. Write for 5 minutes flat โ€“ no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community.

Oh and Ahem, if you would take pity and turn off comment verification, it would make leaving some love on your post that much easier for folks!

  2. Hello! I am dropping in from FMF. ๐Ÿ™‚ I like the idea about “looking” for blessings. It is so true that they are all around us and we sometimes don’t even recognize them! I love the picture you included of the eye with the reflection. When I made my post, I included a picture of my eye, however, it doesn’t show the reflection of what they eye is looking at. Really like that!!

  4. Such a good reminder as I don’t always stop to look at the blessings around me. And I did first just glance over the picture! Glad you made me stop to LOOK! Thanks for sharing.
