The Droopy. The Dried Out. The Ready to Fall Apart.


I was about to throw out the tulips in this vase, but as I sat there, finishing my coffee, I was drawn to the droopy, the dried out, the ready to fall apart petals. They weren’t perfect and fresh anymore, yet the beauty of the details still intrigued me. There was still so much to enjoy.


I think we all feel that way sometimes. Tired, dried up, droopy…and I don’t mean physically (although…😉).  It pretty much sums up our weekend. Emotionally exhausting on many levels. Yet, God reminded me over and over that there’s beauty in the ‘droopy, dried up, falling apart’ moments of life. What we think is ready to be thrown out, holds a beauty that the fresh, beautiful, and vibrant part of our lives never showed us.
