J ran through the house calling for E, “Hurry, E! Come and look, there is a robin in our backyard!”
They watched through the glass door in wonder as the birds frolicked in the yard.
“There’s a black one with a shiny blue tummy!”
“There’s an all red one, Mommy!”
I told them the red one is called a cardinal.
“A cardinal! A cardinal!”
“Now there are two robins. No, three!”
“Maybe if we’re real quiet we’ll hear them tweet.”
They watched intently until the birds flew on to their next destination.
Today I am thankful for the wonder on the faces of the children as they observe the beauty of the world God has created for us to enjoy.
Too often I get so caught up in the “things” of life that I forget to take time to observe and enjoy. Studying Genesis these last few weeks has been a great reminder of God’s loving provision in creating the world.
Take some time today to wonder at the birds.
