I want to be Wonder Woman!!! I'm not talking about Linda Carter in her skimpy super-hero costume. (Many of you are too young to even remember that! OUCH!) Why would I want to have to wear tights, high healed boots, & a belt squeezing my waist every day?
I'm not even talking about the woman who can "buy her own bacon & fry it up in a pan".....or the woman who can "have it all"! These are all examples of what the world perceives as a wonder woman.
I want to be a woman who never loses her sense of wonder! I'm usually pretty easy to impress, but I want to be curious and take the time to appreciate even the small wonders of this amazing life.
I want to have this kind of fascination:
*Like a child who doesn't give up asking....why? ....why?....why? Who can read the same book over & over & over & still laugh at the same spots!
*To stop what I'm doing & watch a spider work diligently to spin that intricate web glistening in the sun, just to do it all again tomorrow!
*Get up out of my cozy bed & gaze at the moon & stars hanging effortlessly above me on a clear night! Appreciate how gravity is holding everything in place! (& appreciate it even though it's also pulling my face & other body parts down too...UGH!)
*Observe that tenacious ant carrying a piece of food 5000 times its own weight!
*Still be amazed every time I fly, that an airplane can stay in the sky & can get me 1300 miles in 3 hours!
*I can plant a seed as small a pin head & with time & nurture it can grow into a huge tree!
* In this New Orleans humid heat, I can be refreshed by the invention of air conditioning....& I don't even have to understand how it works!
*Realize the miracle that my heart is beating, my lungs breathing, my legs moving, my mind concentrating, my blood pulsating.....without even thinking about it!
*The wonder....that a VIRGIN gave birth to the Savior....who LIVES inside of little ol' me!!!!! That's the greatest wonder of all!
The Bible tells us to have "child-like faith".....isn't that WONDERful?!!!!
