Pens, Notes and Chai

These are a few of my favorite things

I recently read an article on the dailymailabout sand.  The article shows photographs of the beautiful intricate details of a grain of sand when it is magnified.  Each grain is unique and has incredible details and vivid colors that we cannot see with the naked eye. 

It got me to thinking about the many times I have walked on beaches enjoying the ocean, the wind and the people, even looking for unusual shells in the sand and surf.  I never thought that much about the infinite number of grains of sand, each tiny grain unique with its own story.  AMAZING! Right before my eyes and I never saw, because I never took the time to magnify.

The incredible pictures in this article bring a new meaning to the phrase “treasures hidden in the sand” in Deuteronomy 33:19. :)   Although it is unclear what this verse is referring to, these pictures certainly open up a whole new treasure in a place I have so often taken for granted, sometimes even found to be a nuisance.

Once again I find Euchersteo in the most unexpected places, in the everyday, right before my eyes.  If only I would stop to magnify the common, Oh what treasures I might find.
