The Prompt:

December 4 – Wonder. How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year?

This is a tough one. And I really don’t have an answer yet, but I don’t want to get too far behind with the prompts. So… here goes… on the fly writing.

I think that I have always contained within me a sense of wonder larger than most people. I don’t know how to explain this. All I know is that sometimes I see so much beauty in the world that I can’t stand it. I sometimes see it in relationships between people or beautiful scenery… but more often than not I see it in something as simple as overgrown grass blowing in the wind along the side of the highway. I’m not sure what it is, but something about the picture just screams life! and beauty! and Creator! to me. And I get the warm fuzzies. 🙂

How have I cultivated this? I really don’t have an answer here. Maybe through being out in the world with my camera and trying to capture the wonder? Looking to the side and seeing my husband, camera around his neck, appreciating the wonder of it all too? I don’t think it’s something we do purposefully; it just comes naturally.

Hmmmm… not bad for on the fly. Maybe I should write without an agenda more often….
