This lovely bloom appeared near the church steps, hidden away in the corner. As if to hide itself even more, the bloom drooped toward the ground. I had to lift the bloom and hold the stem in order to take the photo.
Look closely, and you can find hidden gems all around you. I came across one recently in my daily Bible reading: a woman named Sheerah, mentioned in one verse in 1 Chronicles. Apparently Sheerah was responsible for the building of several cities! (see 1 Chronicles 7:24)
The Holy Spirit often works in unexpected, inconspicuous places. A fisherman’s boat … a field of shepherds and sheep … a manger. What are the hidden beauties in your life? Has the Spirit visited you in an out-of-the-way or unexpected place? Give thanks for the quiet beauty of God’s work.
