Day 521 - Hidden gems.

My garden was transformed into a wonderland of dewdrops this morning. Turning this picture around and looking a little deeper at what was hidden in the little drop of water made me realise how rewarding it can be to take the time to get to know more.

More about life. More about those sharing this world with us. More about why we are.

More about who we are and what we could be.

Turning things upside down might sometimes reveal something totally new, totally unexpected - the same thing, but so much more perfect when viewed from another angle!

I focused on the agapanthus flower when I composed the shot - little did I know that hidden in the little dewdrop I would later discover this amazing scene. All I had to do was to look a little closer, to turn it around a little. I had to get rid of the bigger picture to discover the beauty inside.

I'm discovering gems like this in the most unexpected places. Looking a little deeper. Really listening. People say so much between the lines. Focus on the moment, instead of the bigger picture.

I would have missed out if I chose not get my feet wet this morning...

'Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew,
like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants.'
~ Deuteronomy 32:2


  1. Such an amazing view when you inspect the tiny objects that God sends our way. It is the small things in life that cause us to be thankful for - big things too, but small precious tokens of grace thrill our soul.

  2. How thrilling to discover such beauty in the 'ordinary'. Sometimes we just need to take the time to look a little deeper.

  3. Oh how beautiful! What a neat blog you have!! Can't wait to read more. :) Hope you'll stop by Cooking Up Faith to see what Walk with Us Wednesday Link up is all about!

  4. 'Sometimes we just need to take the time to look a little deeper...' - something I am really trying to do nowadays!

  5. Wow! These photos are beautiful! That last one with the view in the dewdrop is amazing! I love it, just love it...
