"Let the little children come," Jesus said. Of course, he was speaking directly to his disciples who were holding the little children back who wanted to see Jesus and be near him. But more than that, I believe Jesus was teaching us how to approach our lives...to approach everything with eyes of curiosity and wonder and awe.
In some ways, the trendy use of the word awesome this past decade has not held the true holiness of the word, when it's used to describe just about everything! Then I think, but to come as a child don't we have to approach everything as an awesome miracle? Now, I'm not so dry behind the ears as to assume everyone who uses the term awesome does so in a miraculous way, but words reflect our culture, and maybe the consciousness of everything being a miracle is creeping into our everyday language and, thus, our culture. So the next time a teenager comments that a screeching car going by is awesome, I'll just translate it to miraculous!
