The literal answer to this age old expression is, “No, a thousand times NO!” God’s wonders are in the food we eat, the scenery we take pictures of, an answered prayer, a second chance, and the togetherness of a family. God’s wonders take us to new heights if the one in the middle of the wondrous decides to catch the kite string and soar into the spiritual.
This summer, my husband and I saw many wondrous things in our month long road trip and I would love to share some of my best pictures with you. Psalm 148 just seems to fit.
This excerpt from The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones captures the childlike simplicity of creation and its response to wonder.
And when God saw them He was like a new dad. “You look just like me,” He said. “You’re the most beautiful thing I’ve ever made!” God loved them with all of His heart. And they were lovely because He loved them. And Adam and Eve joined in the song of the stars and the streams and the wind in the trees, the wonderful song of love to the one who made them.
This post is just a reminder to join the song.
