Be Living In Awe

I like love to control things.  I love to have everything in its place and know my schedule for the next day, even the week ahead.  But I am learning that this need to control doesn’t allow for the awesomeness of God to shine through.  I want to be living in awe.

This week, I made a small commitment to myself to notice when my spirit says “awe”.

Here are a few I want to share with you.

  • Our middle guy talking to daddy on the phone and asking, “how are you feeling Dada?”
  • Biting into a bright, red, locally grown strawberry.   Plus having them all ready and frozen to enjoy during the winter months.
  • Getting an email from a boot camp buddy saying they are thinking of me and praying for me. (Thanks Annette!)
  • See our sick little OC lying in Papa’s arms with a snotty nose.  (I guess only a mom would say “awe” over that one.)
  • My oldest last day of Kindergarten
  • A parking spot in front of the coffee shop
  • Thumb sucking
  • Baby OC getting his own water and spilling it everywhere
  • Reading great blogs from all over the world –Little Duckies, Photos by Andy, 3Monsters, FoodieGardeningClub
  • A rainbow and the boys being able to “see” the treasure
  • Colourful flowers in my mom’s hard
  • A huge worm to go along with the beautiful garden
  • My husband coming home to hugs

“Faith starts with awe…with a mixture of wonder and fear all human beings

feel toward the mystery that envelops us.”
