With Wonder and Delight...

Are you marvelling at the world around you
with wonder and delight?

My sweet girl is.

And what pleasure it brings me
to watch the fascination it brings to her heart and mind
as she's learning each new thing I'm teaching and showing her
for the first (and many times after.)
And the greatest joy indeed for this mama
is when she gapes and squeals when we walk into any room
or even look in a slightly silly manner at her delightful little face.

Don't you think it brings our Father God's heart joy
when we marvel at Him, His creation
and the new things He's teaching us too?

I want to have that child-like wonder and delight too...

The father (and mother) of the righteous will greatly rejoice, And he who begets a wise child will delight in him. -Proverbs 23:24

He shall pray to God, and He will delight in him. He shall see His face with joy...-Job 33:26

Zane and I were just discussing how amazing it having kids is teaching us the nature and love of our heavenly Father.
