Life is a wonder, and my heart is full of awe and gratitude.
Poet James Dillet Freeman wrote, “I have been alone under the sky when suddenly I was one with all the beauty and wonder and glory of the world. The sky was not high enough, the horizons were not wide enough to hold my heart.” My intention today is to recognize beauty and goodness, to be in awe of God’s creation. Whether walking on a crowded sidewalk or strolling along a country lane, I look for signs and wonders. The dandelion poking through a tiny crack in a sea of concrete represents the power of life in all things. The wheat growing in a field will become bread to feed the multitudes. Life truly is a wonder, and my heart is full of gratitude and awe.
God saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very good.—Genesis 1:31
