Sometimes small family outings can turn into significant ones. As I continue to observe: ‘small things make a big difference’.
My family and I took a beach walk the other day and it turned into a whale watching event and a botany class on Banksias.
Below: from the headland. In between the beach in the distance and the rock in the foreground, the whales were moving about and waving tail fins which reflected off the sun. A boat is near to the right of this.
So in order to mark the occasion and in a moment of inspiration, I wrote this little ditty down:
not silent, just finely tuned
into this moment of breathtaking brilliance.
This present, its significance
the surprise in little gasps of … WoW!!
Met with a priceless magnificence,
in this joy-filled ambiance, cherished,
my grateful heart bows.
I recollect in this reminder, permission granted
through Jesus the Christ’s persistence
Lord, be mindful of my contented-thankfulness.
For this present. Its life-giving significance,
and the priceless
magnificence in little gasps of…WoW!!
