Wonder and Delight

My soul, wait silently for God alone,
For my expectation is from Him.
Psalm 62:5 NKJV

This weekend I was wondering if I should take a couple weeks off from blogging, so I gave myself persmission to do just that.
Then this morning, I noticed the two chairs I recently placed around the table, painted with the words: Wonder and Delight.
I chose delight last summer, so I decided to paint another word on the second folding chair. I thought to myself, what word goes with delight? Moments later, wonder popped into my mind. I was delighted.
Always needing more definition in my life, I went to the dictionary to search out the meaning.
wonder (n): a feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar or inexplicable. (New American Oxford Dictionary)
Ahhh…the joy of words strung together like jewels on a necklace. As I marvelled over the depth of wonder, I began to worship the One who delights to reveal Himself through words.
Here is a little poem to our Wonderful God, who delights in our praises.
O, Lord, do such
New and amazing
Enter daily into my
May this be your experience today:
Opened eyes delighting in
Embracing ever-widening

  1. Thanks Lynni- It is nice to have a visual reminder to wonder AND to delight…sometimes life pulls me to doubt and despair…but those two words remind me where to go when I feel those other words pulling at me…right back into the presence of Jesus!

  2. Kel–so you're just gonna smile when you read my post about taking 6 weeks off from blogging….was thinking of you and others when I wrote it and I had no idea…. Must be God, eh?Wonder and delight–oh, Father give us eyes to see.

  3. Jody- I did smile…it seems that there needs to be a balance between silence and blogging…I am so excited for your Advent(ure) with God this season…I am glad that you sense the freedom to be silent (sort of)
