Wondrous Wednesday

The end of the day is better than not at all right?  It was just one of those days.

Okay so on with Wondrous Wednesday.  Trent sent me a link yesterday with some great thoughts on remaining enthralled with God.  You can access the full article here. 

I will share a few of my favorites with some pictures I took of the sunsetting on my way home last night.  It was so beautiful, I chased it through the neighborhood and then parked my car at the golf course and ran out to catch a few more.

"I shall not fall into the falsehood that this day, or any day, is merely another ambiguous and plodding twenty-four hours, but rather a unique event, filled, if I so wish, with worthy potentialities. I shall not be fool enough to suppose that trouble and pain are wholly evil parentheses in my existence, but just as likely ladders to be climbed toward moral and spiritual manhood."

"I shall open my eyes and ears. Once every day I shall simply stare at a tree, a flower, a cloud, or a person. I shall not then be concerned at all to ask what they are but simply be glad that they are. I shall joyfully allow them the mystery of what Lewis calls their “divine, magical, terrifying and ecstatic” existence."

"Even if I turn out to be wrong, I shall bet my life on the assumption that this world is not idiotic, neither run by an absentee landlord, but that today, this very day, some stroke is being added to the cosmic canvas that in due course I shall understand with joy as a stroke made by the architect who calls himself Alpha and Omega."

Since it's been one of those days...I told Sam he needed to brush his teeth before he kissed you tonight because he was biting his toenails at Awanas.
Love you, girl.
