I’m Thankful – Day 13
After a couple of really busy days I’m back to my thankfulness journal and today I’m thankful for wonder.
When I was a kid, the tide pools at the beach were the epitome of wonder. All the fabulous, unique and colorful ocean creations sparked my sense of awe and that hasn’t really changed much over the years. A starfish or sea anemone still takes me back to that childlike place of amazement.
Here are a couple of photos I snapped of the sea-life attached to the piles under the pier in Avila.
And today as I write this post I am drawn into an even deeper sense of wonder than the mystery of the starfish and sea life. As I listen to Christmas music playing softly in the background I am captivated with wonder at the mystery of the incarnation. How beyond my understanding is the reality that “the Lord of heaven to earth came down”. The thought takes me to a place of stillness and I sit in childlike amazement as I gaze deeply at a love that is far beyond my comprehension.
Have you stopped to ponder the depth of the beauty of the incarnation this Advent season?
What is it that moves you to wonder?
