Every so often I get one of those "Whoa!" moments when I'm suddenly shocked by the sheer amazing...ness of some everyday act or event. Tuesday, it was creativity. I was sitting on the couch reading a book about Rationalism (which is sort of irrelevant but it's what sparked the idea.) and I realized...wow...we, as people, have been given the ability to...make something. When I write a poem, or Micah builds a Lego model, or Rebecca draws a picture, (I know, we all write poetry, and at least two of us build Lego's, but these are unique examples) we aren't simply putting words or blocks together or making marks of graphite on paper, we are creating an idea, or a shape. We are putting something into the universe that wasn't there before! Can you think of how amazing that is!
Okay, so I don't expect you to share my excitement, but I found that really cool!
