I confess, my first attempt at Wonder took me 15 minutes, so I didn't feel I could post it here... maybe it will show up sometime in December when I'm trying to fill in my Fridays without Five Minute Friday... yep, that's right! This is the last Five Minute Friday of 2012. Lisa-Jo (and the rest of us) are taking December off (of 5MF, not blogging).
So what are you waiting for? Go, read Lisa-Jo's post and join in with your own 5 minutes ...
I have no problem seeing God as Creator. Creator of me and the human body, Creator of those four adorable children He gave me. I'm amazed at the intricacies involved in the human body and how it all works together so perfectly.
I have no problem seeing God as Creator of the world, the planets, the universe. I stand amazed at the stars, the moon, the storms, the seasons.
I see God in Autumn. The falling leaves, the glowing sunsets, the bounty and the beauty of harvest.
I see God in Winter. The fresh fallen snow, the sparkling diamonds as the sun reflect off the snow. Even the stark contrast of bare trees against daily gray skies.
I see God in Spring. Fresh green buds, flowers sprouting up through leftover snow. Birds returning in full force. Shades of green everywhere.
I see God in Summer. Longer days, warm sun beating down, the joys of summer berries, and the variety in color.
Why is it, I wonder, do I have such a hard time basking in the wonder of Him as my Father with unconditional love, unending grace and mercy, and blessings above and beyond what I could ask or imagine?
