When We Fall…

pink azalea blossoms lying on ground after rain Today, a simple act of nature brought me around to thinking about how God sees us as “beautiful,” even though we are part of a fallen world.  A spring rain has caused many of the blooms on my azaleas to drop, leaving those blossoms compromised — still beautiful, but separated from the branches where they found life. For me, in that moment, when I saw these petals lying on the wet concrete, it was an illustration of how God sees our singular beauty and potential for beauty, even in our frailty. Even when we’ve fallen, we are, to Him, a beautiful creation.
