Joining Lisa Jo today for her five-minute word prompt on wonder.
Sometimes I hurtle through my day with asteroid momentum, numb to the awe-tinged.
Sometimes I just dog paddle through my week while glory swims around me.
I rush through life at a frantic pace with eyes that do not see.
I don’t stop to wonder at the wonder.
To marvel at the gifts piled as far as I can see.
If I stopped to see.
I’m not amazed at the way the sunlight glows on green.
Or how raindrops flower dance.
Or storm clouds tumble shades of gray.
I don’t catch my breath at the vastness of a starlit sky.
Or how I spin around on a giant ball and don’t fall off.
I don’t feel the thumping of my heart that pulses blood through miles of tunnels.
Or consider my fearfully and wonderfully made frame crafted in perfection.
I’m not stunned with amazement at melodies or colors or aromas.
Sometimes I search for wonder and wonder why I can’t find it.
I look past it when it’s right in front of me.
Sometimes I don’t stop long enough to be still and know.
To wonder at the wonder.
Take a good look at God’s wonders— they’ll take your breath away. ~Psalm 66:5 (Message)
Also spilling these crumbs with sweet Emily.
