Reflecting on 21 Days of Wonder journey is a little overwhelming.
Am so thankful for the ways God showed up- every single day.
And, am so thankful for YOU and everything that you shared along the way.
The community that formed leaves me… well… wonderstruck.
We encouraged each other. We prayed for each other. We giggled with each other. And, we celebrated. Lots!
God unleashed his wonder in amazing ways.
The day we shared our three word prayers moved me to tears.
The day we all posted sunsets (even in rain and crazy weather) made me feel like we were part of a team determined to appreciate wonder across the world.
The day we shared our favorite music and I got so inspired by artists I’d never even heard of but now love.
The end of the journey was really bittersweet. I was thankful to have gone down the path with old friends and new friends. But, I didn’t want to loose the amazing community that had sprung up, seemingly overnight, determined to appreciate wonder in the smallest of details.
But, one of the most amazing things about wonder is that it’s not just confined to 21 Days. Now that we know where to look, we can find wonder in every circumstance.
