wonder.

In the words of Brennan Manning:

"Dear Lord, grant me the grace of wonder. Surprise me, amaze me, awe me in every crevice of your universe. Delight me to see how your Christ plays in ten thousand places, lonely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not His, to the Father through features of men's faces. Each day enrapture me with your marvelous things without number...I do not ask to see the reason for it all; I ask only to share the wonder of it all"
