5 Minute Friday – Wonder

It’s my first Five Minute Friday! People all over the world blogging on the same topic on the same day for just five minutes and linking up at Lisa Jo’s place. Today’s topic:Wonder.

Five Minute Friday

Wonder. Some days I can be full of wonder. I love the details inside a flower. I love to catch snowflakes with my tongue and make snow angels with my daughter. I love the taste of sugar cookies made from an OLD family recipe.

And some days, I just trudge along. Wishing I could see the wonder, but somehow everything seems obscured.

Life is more joyful for me when I see the wonder. I am going to ask God to open my eyes to the wonders around me. He created them just for us to enjoy. Can you imagine His joy when we take a few moments to appreciate all that He created for us?

Tiny eyelashes on a newborn.

A mom holding her little one for the first time.

A steady rain that sounds so soft and warm.

The intricacies and colors of a butterflies wings.

The way my daughter fits perfectly in my arms, no matter how old she gets.

The joy of making something beautiful, creating beauty as our God does.

 

STOP

  1. Beautiful. You described wonder very well – and are so right, choosing joy does show us more wonder in life. Thank you for sharing with the rest of us. (visiting from 5minFri)
