Winter wonder

These days are made for pondering the Creator's work

Philosopher Sam Keen coined the term "wonderosity" to describe the combination of wonder and curiosity. We've often thought that must be what Jesus was referring to when he challenged us to become like little children (Mark 10:13-16).

Winter can be such a wonderland for those with eyes to see and ears to hear. On the surface the winter world appears drab, especially compared to the riot of summer and fall colors. But with wonderosity we can find much to celebrate in these months. Increasing our appreciation for all of God's creation by noticing what arouses our wonder is a spiritual practice.
