Seeing through the eyes of a child, I notice again the beauty of the world You created, Lord.
They touch a bush – and the leaves start to dance! What fun!
Everything is new and fresh – a whole world out there waiting to be discovered.
So much wonder!
So much excitement!
My eyes, Lord, are so used to it all. They see but don’t notice.
Oblivious to the beauty, the wonder of the small and ordinary.
Oh the joy and pride you must feel at a small child discovering this world you created. Your world, made for us, given to us.
Even now, even after the Fall, there is so much beauty! You were so extravagantly generous in creating. What an amazing reflection of your character!
I praise you for the gift of little kids in my life. For their joy at living and exploring, their wonder at the miracle of it all.
Help my eyes and heart to see the way they do!
