Finding Joy in Cleaning

“The beauties of the world are best seen by those who strive to reach them.”  Anonymous

While cleaning (and doing a little decluttering), I came across this quote.

Words typed on a small piece of paper and tucked behind a mirror in an old jewelry box.Mirror Quote

I wonder what “the younger me” was thinking in placing it there.  Was she happy or searching for something more out of life.

One thing is for sure, I know she must have had hope in her heart to take the time to place it in a precious keepsake.

Such a simple thing and it spoke instant beauty to me.  It filled my heart with praise for God’s goodness in giving beauty for ashes. ♥

“Such hope never disappoints or deludes or shames us, for God’s love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit Who has been given to us.”  Romans 5:5 (AMP)

Feeling grateful!
