People were overwhelmed with amazement. “He has done everything well,” they said.
Wow! It’s amazing!!
Everything my two-year old does, sees, or hears is amazing. “Wow, mommy!” he exclaims with wide eyes. He sees things we no longer see. The freshness. The newness. The wonder of it all.
When did we stop finding life amazing? When did we stop walking up to strangers and saying, “Hi! What’s your name?” When did we stop seeking friendship and instead chose seclusion? What makes us comfortable there?
Tavin says, “Woooooow,” or, “whooooa,” a lot. He is utterly fascinated with life. I often even hear him saying—not by any prompting from me or anyone else—“God…” He truly understands that the wonderment he experiences throughout his day comes wholly from God.
Here’s another difference between us and them (children vs. adults): they are very in tune with the Spirit of God. We, on the other hand, get lost in the noise, the traffic, and the blur of the day. We lose focus. We lose sight. And in the end, we lose out on the utter amazement of God.
NOTE TO SELF: Today I will see life through the eyes of a child and find you there. I will be amazed and loudly proclaim, “WOW!! Everything You have done is awesome!”
