I watch the children become so excited when they spot a butterfly or a hummingbird. They point and yell to the other children to come and see.
I begin to notice that it's starting to rub off on me. I get excited when a hummingbird comes to visit my little home garden. They love to poke their bills into my flowers. I sit and watch and listen to the sound of their tiny wings flapping making a humming sound.
What about the stars in the sky? Do you get excited to witness their beauty? I remember years ago when my husband Greg and I had a place in the higher altitude of Flagstaff, Arizona. We could see the stars so clearly and would often spot shooting stars.
I never want to lose that sense of wonder.
Psalm 19:1-4 says:
"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Day after day they pour forth speech, night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world."
Isaiah 55:12 says:
"You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands."
Blessings and love,
