Wonder

A child’s wonder is a priceless commodity. Perhaps the only thing more valuable is the retention of that commodity.

    I was going to contradict Socrates with Solomon, but then it occurred to me that maybe wonder to its full extent, and the fear of the Lord, are the same thing…

    Good insight. Children are so trusting and have amazing faith in those they trust. Unfortunately, so many have their trust diminished as they mature. We as adults still need to remember our responsibilities and also return to a “child-like faith” as well.

    The best part of having a grandson is recapturing some of that childlike wonder. And he’s only four months old!

    Right on! Animals and children are my favorite companions. When my adult friends visit my rural home they are so busy talking and being in their head that they miss the eagle flying by, the smell of freshly blooming lilac, or the soft whisper of a spring breeze. Kids don’t miss a thing (and neither do critters).
