Our Wandering Wise Men Day 17

Gaspar marveled at the wonders of this mysterious contraption.  Balthasar was so far away, yet looked so close when gazing through this little window.

“Wonder is the only adequate launching pad for exploring this fullness, this wholeness, of human life.  Once a year, each Christmas, for a few days at least, we and millions of our neighbors turn aside from our preoccupations with life reduced to biology or economics or psychology and join together in a community of wonder.  The wonder keeps us open-eyed, expectant, alive to life that is always more than we can account for, that always exceeds our calculations, that is always beyond anything we can make."  - Eugene Peterson

Today’s micro-challenge:  Take a walk or drive around your neighborhood, and enjoy the lights and decorations with child-like wonder.
