This week’s FMF writing prompt is: OBSERVANT

I am woefully unobservant. I’m not proud of it. I want to notice things — I really do. It just doesn’t come naturally to me. It’s a battle I’ve been fighting for years now. My kids laugh so hard when I say things like, “Hey, look at that new sign on that building!” and they answer, “Mom. It’s been there for weeks.”

My husband bought me a new phone for my birthday last year, mostly because my phone had run out of storage space, but also because he wanted me to have a better camera. (And yes, the lack of storage space was due to the thousands of photos already taken with my mediocre camera.)

In the days that followed my birthday, I found myself walking around outside looking for something beautiful to photograph with my upgraded lens. The detail and vibrant colors I could capture with my new camera amazed me.

I slowed down, looked more carefully, practiced stillness, and concentrated my focus.

It’s a habit I want to nurture more frequently than I do. Particularly when it comes to noticing God’s faithfulness.

I want to walk around my life looking for evidence of His hand, then stop and take the time to document it.

STOP.
