being awed

[Between impatient check-ins with the news (for many of us), I hope that this perspective adds a counterpoint to your day]:

I’ve been referred to as odd before. Nowadays I prefer to refer to myself as “awed.” I want awe to be the greatest ongoing relationship in my life. I want to move through my days floored by the magnificence and generosity of my Creator. The breaking of a day, the silence between words, the light emanating from a real conversation, and kindness, truth, love, and the apparently random hand of grace: I want to remain gobsmacked by all of it. Rendered speechless by wonder, I await the next unfolding.

Peace, friends. Be awed today.
