The saying goes, "when a door closes, God opens a window."
Lately a lot has been happening around me that certainly feels like doors closing, and I'm trying to keep my faith and believe that a window is about to open somewhere. (I'm just hoping the window is big enough for me to crawl through!)
All this inner reflection has me noticing doors - open and closed.
An open door is obvious, it makes us feel welcome and invites us to come inside. But the closed door? Can it be just as inviting?
As I drive around my neighborhood I notice the doors, some bare and some with a wreath or a holiday decoration. The doors with decals and kids artwork always make me smile and and I remember when my kids were small and every holiday was celebrated with window clings and cutouts.
I admire the different wreaths filled with colorful flowers that match the outside of the house or the ones that clearly are seasonal.
Amazing how such a small detail can make a closed door seem more welcoming, more inviting and warm.
The door in the picture is my front door, the wreath made with love by my sister-in-law and puts a smile on my face everyday when I pull into my driveway. These past few days I look at that closed door and know the love of my family waits on the other side...so maybe a closed door isn't all that bad.
Maybe it's time to stop looking for the window and just open the door!
I hope everything you want and need is waiting just behind the next door you open. Have a great week!
