Gifts: Seen and Unseen

Linking up with The Gypsy Mama for Five Minute Friday (a little late ... ). Join the others to catch up on the fun!


I don't think I ever quite knew just how much of a sensory person I am:

No matter how old the song willl get, I will still love to blare me some Robbie Seay Band "Song of Hope",

Smell lilacs in the spring,

Taste dark chocolate any time of the year,

Hold babies and read stories to little kids,

Watch boats go by and the waves go in and out on sandy beaches.

But despite all these gifts, I think what is most true is the unseen. I long for that which I have small picture for now but what I can't quite see in full yet.

"Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known." 1 Corinthians 13:12



  1. I forget how stimulating the senses are most days. Your post reminded me of this. It's all a gift, the smell of my fiances cologne, the feel of my daughters tiny fingers upon my cheek, the winds softly gathering my hair from around my neck. You painted a beautiful picture. Thank you.

  2. Thanks for coming by Nicole! You painted a beautiful picture right there:). I love how the simple gifts are some of the best after all.
