Ah, to see the world through the eyes of four little souls has been a blessing. Just today in the garden Amy stopped her watering to watch a little beetle drink from a puddle that she had just made. 

"Bug! Bug!" she called to bring it to my attention. She was crouched over to observe her new little friend.

It was hot. Sticky. Totally gross out. I wanted to get the garden watered and return to the cool indoors.

Yet to stop and watch one of God's little creatures, a strange yellow beetle-like bug, enjoying a cool drink on a hot day that we had provided it by watering the flower it was perched on was worth it. 

The key word in the above quote is "see". Do we really see all the wonders around us? Do we see our blessings? Do we try to see the good in everything? (My fingers automatically typed "Do we see the GOD in everything?" That, too, applies.)   
To be like a child. Happy, free, exploring, content, trusting. In wonder of it all.

“Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it”Mark 10:13-15
