Finding Wonder and Beauty

This week we have had what some called a “super blue blood moon”. Sounds very scary, or maybe royal. The coinciding of things that don't often happen – the moon is closer than usual, the second full moon in a month, and a total lunar eclipse. These things last coincided 150 years ago. Some were out eagerly watching; some slept through it.

Rarities are not necessarily spectacular. One does need to know about how rare a thing is to appreciate it just for that. Common things may be spectacular, and are less appreciated for their commonness. But when we pay close attention, the spectacularity may strike us: the tiny snowbell flower; the eyes of a child; cracks in one who is hardened.

God has made everything beautiful in its time; moreover God has put a sense of past and future into human minds. Ecclesiastes 3:11a

Find something beautiful in each day. Appreciate it, however rare or common.
