The other day my dad’s van broke down on the side of the freeway. Needless to say, he found himself in an unexpected place. I went to pick him up and was slightly nervous to be on the side of the freeway with cars zooming past. As my frustration was growing while waiting for the van to be towed, I looked over to the side where wildflowers were growing and saw the Black-Eyed Susans that were just past the guardrail. I found beauty in an unexpected place.
In this weird season of life, I am learning to find beauty in unexpected places. Even on the side of the freeway.
Do you find yourself in an unexpected place? Look for the beauty that is around you.
