Curious George

July 8, 2019


Yesterday we looked at Curious George books. The back story of fleeing Paris on homemade bikes is brilliant.

The authors were a curious and creative two-some who inspired many for years.

It seems obvious to say curiosity matters - but it does.

It awakens,
It engages,
It ignites,
and it is essential to an active faith.

I appreciated Mary Oliver’s poem 
“Sometimes“ where she calls us to life with three lines:

Pay attention,
Be astonished,
Tell someone.

Pretty profound words of invitation.

A reminder that astonishment is a gift from the Creator if we have eyes to see, ears to hear, and words to tell.

How does curiosity inspire you?
