"People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long course of rivers. AND THEY PASS BY THEMSELVES WITHOUT WONDERING." - Augustine

"If we don't offer ourselves to the unknown our senses dull. Our world becomes small and we lose our sense of WONDER. Our eyes don't lift to the horizon; our ears don't hear the sounds around us. The edge is off our experience, and we pass our days in a routine that is both comfortable and limiting. We wake up one day and find that we have lost our dreams to protect our days. Don't let yourself become one of those people." Kent Nerburn

As you enter into this last week of February remember to wonder and remember to dream. Expand your horizons through a book that reminds you of your creativity. Stop and sketch small and exciting things; like bugs, babies, balls of yarn, and give thanks. Read through old journals and recapture those dreams from college; figure out ways to live into them where you are.

Look at your reflection in a nearby pond and take a moment to WONDER at the amazing Creation you are.
