I hope you are managing to stay safe and warm. Recently I went to the Playhouse with my daughter, son-in-law and six year old granddaughter to see Cinderella.
Some may wonder why I would go to the theatre when I cannot see but I can still enjoy the music and atmosphere but what I enjoyed most was listening to my granddaughter cheering, booing and laughing. I could feel her excitement.
Wonder and Excitement
I have been thinking about this and wondering why, as adults, we lose so much of that childhood excitement.
Not long ago we heard again the Christmas story.
Do we just accept it as something very familiar that we hear every year or does it still excite us.
Letting the wonder sink in - and not just at panto season
After all this do we then feel compassion for the homeless, teenage girl giving birth in the squalor of that stable and do we share her joy of a mother looking down with love on her newborn baby.
God with us - Emmanuel
If this doesn't excite us nothing will! Let the wonder sink in.
