Tattered

There was a lesson for me in these tattered leaves. If I can see loveliness in their brokenness how much more the Lord sees beauty in us, no matter how tattered we are.

Reflection:
1 Samuel 16:7 (New International Version)
The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.

  1. I'm so glad that the Lord sees past all of my flaws and sees the beauty inside. Carla

  2. I take this slightly differently, but it probably means the same.

    I find immense beauty in this image. And THAT helps me find immense beauty in tattered people. Hence, many of my subjects in both image and text.
