I am much more at peace, now that the colors have begun to spring forth everywhere. This winter seemed a hard one for me. Last year I enjoyed looking for the different shades of brown, yellow, and rusts in the drabness of winter. This year I struggled to get out side in the temperatures at all.
How thankful I am for the spring. New color brings with it new life. And as the quote says, the tiny bits of color, the tiny details of each living thing - are not just details - but they are the whole. Without details then ... is there nothing? Is this just a play on words?
God created each one of us full of uniqueness, each in our own way. The sometimes tiny parts of us and sometimes bigger parts of us are what make us different, and what make us the same.
It is comforting to know that God knows everything about us. He knows our successes and our struggles. Who better to go in those hard times, than our Creator?
