From my Journal


Wonder.

Baby blue eyes widen.
Astonishment.
New discovery.


Mouth opens in a gasp.
Awe.
Landscape viewed.

Face wet with tears.
Amazement.
Word revealed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lord, my God.

Too Great.
Too Deep.
Too Beautiful.

Reason-baffling
Savior.
Sense-overriding
Redeemer.

Made known,
still incomprehensible.

Sin-abhorring,
yet mankind-loving.


Holy and Just,
Friend and Lover.

Often rejected,
forgotten;
Always renewing,
forgiving.

The warmth of Your
grace;
the touch of Your
comfort;
the infinity of Your
joys;
the greatness of Your
presence;
the power of Your
sacrifice;
the beauty of Your
holiness;
the passion of Your
love...

I can only know,
never
understand.

I can only whisper,
"Mystery"
and shout,
"Wonder"!

Amen.
