“The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of the child into old age, which means never losing your enthusiasm.” Aldous Huxley (credit: unknown)

Ahhh … to be like a child! Jesus tells us to be child-like, but what does this mean? As we age we tend to lose sight of wonder, simplicity and adventure. Watch a child, or think back to your own childhood, and recall that sense of adventure. That time in our lives when all was new. We noticed the world around us, from the shapes of the clouds to the marching of the ants. When was the last time you did that?

Our (my) challenge is to again be child-like. To see the world around us from the perspective of wonder, simplicity and newness. Can you do that this weekend? What did you experience or learn?
