tiny beauty

as hailey and i were descending the beautiful forest trail, she suddenly
stooped to the ground and pulled out her camera.  my head was in the
clouds and the mountain peaks, but hers had found a treasure smaller
than her toe.



"you'll come to learn a great deal if you study the insignificant in depth."
odysseus elytis





"God chose the things the world considers foolish in order to shame those
who think they are wise."  1 corinthians 1:27

Love this...how beautiful. I did a post on "Did you Miss It" because it was such as small flower tucked away among weeds...like our life when we move to fast and miss the beautiful things tucked away
This reminds me that when we slow down we see His handwork...oh, I don't want to miss it!!
Thanks!

Now mushrooms are not my thing, but she makes that one look very interesting. Your perspective is very interesting as well.

His creation is beyond awesome!
Love this scripture, always
have. We will see more and more
of God confounding the so-called
wise in the months and years to
come before His wonderful return.
Blessings,
Sandy

Hey, it's good to know I'm not the only one who takes pictures of mushrooms :) yours is cuter and more colorful than the ones I've found.

So much truth in this post!

Farm Girl said...

Lovely photos, I always thought about that too, I would be walking with my head in the clouds and my kids would notice the ground beneath their feet.
Thanks Lea,

It's true--we sometimes overlook the beauty of the small things, and our God is the maker of both big and small miracles!

I love photographs of mushrooms, they have such pleasing shapes whether big or small.

Just doing a quick catchup but I'm still travelling.
