Scarlett discovered this beautiful white iris in our front yard yesterday.
It is quite the phenomenon, because all of the irises that we planted are purple, and they've been that way for two growing seasons. Now, mysteriously, this white one has appeared. It is brilliant, don't you think?
It got me thinking about being different. Do you ever feel different? Do you ever feel like you "stick out"? I admit that sometimes I do. But what this flower reminded me of today is that not only is it ok to stand out, to be daringly different than the crowd, to be yourself, but it is wise to "own" the beauty that makes us different, to be thankful for it, to rejoice in it.
God, in his wisdom, has made each one of us unique for a wise and glorious purpose.
The best journey ever is to discovery what that purpose is...
