Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
Seeing the beauty
We can see our Higher Power in so many beautiful things in this world: the reflection of light in the running brook, the spectrum of colors in the oil spot on the street, the stubbly grass peeking out of the snow like morning whiskers, hail popping like kernels of corn, the music of rain, the face of a child, the face of an elder.
Some of us see our Higher Power most clearly in the light of another’s eyes or in acts of unselfish kindness and know ourselves to be part of it. With clean, sober eyes we can see this beauty.
Can I see the beauty all around me?
Higher Power, help me to see the beauty all around me today and to realize that I, too, am beautiful in your eyes.
