What if we lived the way she does?
Explored each thing as though for the first time...
Peered intently into the depths of the sand...
Looked not just with eyes, but also with heart...
And felt everything as though with a baby's hand?
How much more would we see, would we love, if we opened our eyes wide like hers?
Or if once in a while we would just look down, would we love where we are in the world?
Sometimes, I just know I'm being tapped on the shoulder. I believe that God loves me enough to talk just to me from time to time. Slow down, he says, and look at all that I have made. Soak in the beauty. Remember that I created everything, and that I proclaimed it all to be good.
Humankind was created for His pleasure and delight. But what wonders are around us that He created for our delight?
Find your childlike faith. Look with the eyes of your heart, and see that He makes all things new.
