The Wonder of Light

Nelchina Sunrise

Wonder seems to involve light; stars, moon, Northern Lights, sunrise, sunset, or the sparkle of sun on snow. This photo, taken in the early morning on the Glenn Highway between Nelchina and Glennallen, shows the sun illuminating a plume formed by an evaporating jet stream. This moment filled me with wonder and thankfulness for eyes to see and the joy of being alive.

What fills you with wonder?

Some of the lyrics to my favorite Christmas song by Chris Rice:

Fragile finger sent to heal us
Tender brow prepared for thorn
Tiny heart whose blood will save us
Unto us is born
Unto us is born

Link to listen to the whole song: Welcome to Our World
