The breath he was holding escaped his lips
as he peered out the airplane window.
"Look how much ocean there is, Mom," he says, "Wow!"
And I felt his breath in my ear~
Full of excitement and wonder and anticipation
as we were hurled into unknown adventures.
This must be, I thought,
a tiny bit of the excitement that God felt
on that second day of creation.
I imagine God gasped, even as the Spirit breathed into this world,
"Look....look how much there is and can be and is to come..."
Thank you, Carter, for reminding me of wonder on the FIRST day of our trip to Guatemala (and we hadn't even left the country yet).
