Exclamations of WOW

On Christmas Day, while at our JV celebration, a one and a half year old little boy brought us all a special delight.

Enchanted by an old Buzz Lightyear toy being played with by another child, he couldn't help exclaiming for an extended period of time, "Wow, Woowwww, WOOOOOOWWWW!!!!"

His delight totally enchanted me! And his pure joy became the exclamation of the day for all of us.

I wished I'd taken a video of him as he continually expressed his joy, as if Buzz was the newest, coolest and most awesome toy ever made! It made me want to be more like my little buddy.

So today, when I noticed through the window that a beautiful sunset was in the making, I hurried outside to do a little "wowing" myself.

With just my phone in hand, I started capturing the magnificence of a late December sunset over our mountains. In one direction it was orange, and at the same time, in the other direction, pink.

And then a melding of the colors in between. WOW!

As the colors of the sunset continued to deepen, I couldn't just experience it by myself. Not wanting to miss a moment, I quickly knocked on the window and called out to Dave and Claire. Thankfully trusting my giddy "Come our here NOW!!", they hurried to join me.

And together we began admiring God's paintings in the sky.

Every direction you turned was an awesome display of His creativity!

And then, seemingly in the blink of an eye, it was done. But oh my...those few minutes of standing outside this evening were definitely worthy of many exclamations of "WOW!!!!!!!!"

Thankful to the Lord for his glorious creativity that inspires my joyful wows!
