Quick, before I get Sidetrack'd

Thanksgiving, Day 2

Thoughtfully penned on November 2nd, 2012 and generally concerning Uncategorized

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.
