 It's been a challenging week at work, but every day, through the rising sun peeking through the trees or the discovery of a lily uncurling its leaves or the shimmery light that follows a shower, there's been a moment when beauty has broken through my busyness and stress and has caused me to catch my breath and marvel at God's awesome creativity and immeasurable goodness.
