The Delight of Wonder

What would it mean to approach
every day with wonder, as Rabbi Abraham Heschel taught?
What would it mean to see life
as through the lens of a camera, as our son-in-law does?

What would it mean to pause,
to re-approach life with wonder,
so that we might experience
the delightful mystery of life all around us?

Dear Lord, grant me the grace of wonder.
Surprise me, amaze me, awe me, enrapture me
with Your marvelous things without number.
I do not ask
to see the reason for it all;
I ask only
to share the wonder of it all.
--Abraham Joshua Heschel

As you know, that is one of the greatest gifts that comes from our children...Seeing the world through Michael's eyes constantly renews my awe for the wonders of the world.
