I set my children up with some map puzzles this morning.
The eight year old with one of the world…
The four year old with one of the United States…
But apparently it has been a little while since we’ve done geography on this level,
because the younger one suddenly bursts out,
“Mommy!! Mommy!! Neverland!! I found Neverland!! I found it!!”
and then the older one gets a puzzled look on his face and responds,
“But I thought I had it…”
What puzzle pieces are they holding?
Gabriel is holding the Netherlands
while Asher holds Nevada
Yep. I live in a child’s world.
Where reality and imagination mingle and blend.
Where the idea of Neverland being found on a real map
is as reasonable as a stop in America or Europe.
It is full of wonder and beauty.
As it should be.
Because, after all, our world was made with simple words.
God’s best magic.
“Let there be….”
We do live in a magical world,
made by our Father’s spoken command.
If we have the eyes to see it,
we can embrace the fact that fiction is simply a reflection of nonfiction,
imaginary lands a reflection of the magical world in which we actually dwell.
May we have the eyes to see the glory of the world we live in,
a world created by a loving Father for His children to cultivate.
