Last night, I was watching TV with my two-year-old. You know that Columbia logo that they show at the beginning of movies, the one where the woman is standing up holding a light, and it lights up all around her?
Well, that’s an image that I, for one, am excessively familiar with and never thought much of it.
However, upon hearing the music played with it, my little Noah looked up at the TV, then looked at me and said, “Wow! Look Mom!”
It gave me pause, and I stopped and actually looked at it. It is truly a beautiful Goddess-like image that is presented.
So, how is this significant?
Well, sometimes, I think that as adults, we lose our sense of wonder. And I think that if we look at children and try to see things through their eyes; maybe we can find it again. The world is truly a beautiful and amazing place, if we will just open our eyes and look.
So today, I’d like to challenge you. I’d like to challenge you to look at something you’ve seen hundreds or thousands of times, and look at it with the wonder of a child Go outside and look at the sky, or a tree, or even get down on the ground and look at the grass up close.
You will be amazed, and hopefully, will find yourself noticing wondrous things all over your world.
