I put up the survey I was supposed to do at the bottom of this post.
I don’t really have time to write today as I am getting ready to leave today but I found this old post from October 17th and I wanted to repost it. I am pretty sure none of you have read it as my only comment on it was from my Aunt Susan. Back then I only had a few readers it was only my 6th or 7th post. LOL I am going to try to get around to everyone before I go. Take care everyone.
Rediscover your self and every little thing around you.
Have you ever noticed that introducing something you once had great passion for to someone who has never experienced that thing can renew your passion for it?
Opera, the sound breaks your heart and at the same time it sends your spirit soaring to the heavens. But eventually you stop feeling that way every time you hear it. Then you introduce someone to it and you realize it has been a while since you have felt that way and you see it in a rediscovered light and your spirit once again soars.
A family member of mine recently was saved and her questioning and new found passion for that which I have had my whole life has forced me to reexamine and rediscover a joy and passion for my faith.
My love for my husband is no less than it was but it is changed. Watching someone fall in love for the first time reminds me how it was for me and I fall in love all over again.
I wonder if this is how it is when you have children?
Imagine your child coming to you and asking, “Mom why do birds fly?” And you realize you know the answer but you have forgotten the magic of the question. You know the science behind why a bird flys but do you know why a bird flys? Your child pets a bunny for the first time and whispers, “Mom it is so soft.” And for one moment you forget about germs and fur coats and think right along with her, It is so soft.
When you have children do the simple things once again have magic? White puffy clouds, ice cream, a spiders web, a mushroom that wasn’t there the day before, rainbows, rain when the sun is shining, the sandpaper tongue of a kitten, the slobbery tongue of a dog, a giraffes long neck, an elephants trunk, the list could go on forever.
What a burden what a joy. You become responsible for making sure that child discovers everything about herself and her world, what an amazing chance to rediscover yourself, your world.
Perhaps that is the reason we say “Out of the mouths of babes.” It is not that they are wise they simply speak simple truths that are unpolluted by hard times, pessimism and years of playing “The Game”.
My challenge to you, live each day not just with wisdom but with wonder. See each thing through the eyes of a child.
“Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God. Assuredly I say to you whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.”Mark 10:14-15
