Hubby and I have had some unexpected changes come into our lives. Some good, some not so good. One day last week we had to go downtown. Unexpectedly we found ourselves having lunch at The Garden restaurant across the way from Temple Square. We were feeling pretty blue, but gazing out the window I saw the Salt Lake Temple and had to snap a picture. Just gazing at this beautiful building made me feel much better about our situation.
As we were leaving I also caught a glimpse of this fellow.
You really can't see his pretty blue colors. He seemed happy there on his perch shielded from the wind. And he had quite a view. It made me stop and think how our troubles are all a matter of perspective.Yes, Hubby and I have had a major change come to us, but our perch isn't so bad. We have many blessings and we're so very grateful for family and friends who help us through trying times. They are like the wall protecting this pigeon, keeping us safe.
And the temple . . . makes me think of my life on an eternal level, not just what is happening to me now.
How about you? What makes you think of the blessings in your life?
