Five Minute Friday: Discover

Good week.  Busy week. Been doing some learning and reflecting that will result in some tweaking of my writing and blog.  Excited for those changes.

Linking up again with Kate Motaung and the FMF crew.

This week’s prompt is: Discover.

******************

There’s something about the wonder of a child when they make a discovery:

To see with new eyes the immenseness, the intricacy, the awesomeness.

To experience for the first time and to feel the thrill of uncovering a secret.

We lose that child-like wonder. The reds and yellows and oranges of fall cease to amaze us. The baby grows and we forget the miracle of birth. The butterfly emerges and flies away and we forget the wonder of transformation.

We live in a blaze of glory but it all becomes routine and ordinary when we lose the thrill of discovery.

    Hi! I’m visiting this week from FMF #22. I love that last line, “We live in a blaze of glory but it all becomes routine and ordinary when we lose the thrill of discovery.” I also think we lose that thrill because we let busyness invade, instead of leaving room for that discovery! Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you Beth. I pray I keep seeking Him in all the wonder of His creation. It helps me to stay thankful to appreciate beauty around me. Have a wonder-full weekend, Julie, visiting from FMF
