I am always amazed at the world around me. There is always something new to see, something that we can learn from, something we can marvel at. One of my favorite things is finding the extraordinary in the ordinary. Take a spiderweb, spiderwebs are everywhere. They are common. Now take a spiderweb and put it in front of a sunset. The spiderweb is immediately transformed to golden thread that shines with light.
All of the beauties of the world belong to Him. He created so much for us to see, learn, and wonder at.
One of my goals in life is to see the world. All of it. I want to see every corner. I believe that it is our duty as Children of God to marvel at His creation, to recognize just how truly beautiful it is. There is so much hidden around us that we don't notice. The brilliant greens of trees leafing out, the soft smell of summer on the breeze, flowers touched by dew in the morning.
God created life to be full of small pleasures. I don't have to leave my own backyard to find His hand. Science shows us just how complex and unrepeatable the world is. We were created to be curious and thoughtful towards life around us. Throughout my life, I'm going to keep my eyes open for the wonder all around us, because I don't want to miss a single spiderweb that is waiting for me out there.
