Word Filled Wednesday: Wonder of Creation
Sometimes, I think we just need to take a moment to look around us in wonder, and thank God for the beauty of His creation. When I was a young girl, I loved to lay in the grass and look up at the moon and the stars, wondering what was going on in the heavens above me. I did not worry about things like Intelligent Design, Evolution or Creation. I simply believed. I can not remember I time when I did not simply believe. I saw signs of God's promises all around me, in every tree and flower, in each meal on our dinner table, in every heartache, in every second chance, in each smiling face, and in each gentle reproof.
Sometimes, I long for that childlike faith and wonder again. As we get older, we get so caught up in the responsibilities of being an adult. Work, bills, grocery shopping, dinner, dishes....we forget to be amazed at the One who makes it all possible for us. So, tonight, before you finish the day, step outside, sneak a peak at the stars, and for a moment, feel a little bit of wonder.
