Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Sometimes it would be good to step back and evaluate our measures of beauty and success. We often operate by the measurements set for us. Under most circumstances, I understand why. However, sometimes we let that spill into opportunities and interest that are ours for the taking. Growing up, it was a poor fishing day if every bass was less than 3 pounds or we didn't hit our limit in speckled trout on the coast. It wasn't until I was older when I began to recognize that my definition of success was wrong. It isn't the size of the fish, the intensity of the fight, and the number caught, it was everything else. It is the late night prep work and hours of fly tying. It is the strategic planning of put ins and take outs. It is the effort of presentation, ensuring the fly hits the water perfectly. Its the acknowledgement of the beautiful black lateral line on an Alabama bass or the Cahaba lilies resting on the shoals as you drift by. Its the willingness to have intentional conversations on the water with your friends. It's the fulfillment found in enjoying God's creation and God's people. It's enjoying them as we go. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

What hobby do you have that brings you joy? Where do you find rest? How are you taking time to to enjoy God's creation and God's people?

As We Go,
