There is a small little shelf in my shop where I keep these special yarns. A shelf where you would not expect to find anything special. There is no flashy label, no name tag, nothing. People easily miss it; they simply walk straight past it. But if I make the customer aware of it, the reaction is the same every time. Surprise. Shock. The satisfaction of finding unexpected beauty.
How often do we miss the beauty in other people simply because we do not expect it to be there? How often do we assume things wrongly and end up missing the truth? How many people sit in our churches with hidden gifts simply because no one thinks they are able to contribute?
May God open our eyes to see the hidden beauty in the unexpected places.
