Do It Again!
Because children have abounding vitality, because they are in spirit fierce and free, therefore they want things repeated and unchanged. They always say, “Do it again”; and the grown-up person does it again until he is nearly dead. For grown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony. But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, “Do it again” to the sun; and every evening, “Do it again” to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we. ~ G.K. Chesterton
One thing that never ceases to amaze me in Haiti is the kids’ constant sense of wonder. These pictures uphold the richness of their sheer delight. They convict me to not lose the innocent awe and wonder that God intends His creation to bestow in order to reveal parts of Himself. My hope is that the monotony of life doesn’t prevent you from losing the eyes of your youth…the eyes that lead to honest praise and wonder!
