Notice and Wonder
Do I notice the hues of the sky
and wonder why God selected that composition for the sunrise today?
Do I notice the squeal of children playing
and wonder what they have discovered?
Do I notice the shapes of leaves and blooming flowers
and wonder what God was thinking when He created each one?
Do I notice the balloons dancing with the wind across the sky
and wonder if they were released or lost?
Do I notice the sadness in another’s eyes
and wonder what weight they carry?
Do I notice the voice inside my head telling me I’m not enough
and wonder what might be Jesus’ compassionate response?
Do I notice that God is mystery
and wonder how He is going to reveal to me today that He is present?
Let me pause today to notice and wonder more.
