The Want of Wonder

A wonderful blog that I have just discovered!


“The world will never starve for want of wonders, but for want of wonder.”
— G. K. Chesterton
Perhaps it is the nature of what I do, but I never lack for wonder.  Every day, whether it is on the farm, within my family or in my doctoring, I witness wonders that bring me to my knees.  I am awed by how extraordinary is the ordinary, whether it is a full harvest moon, a well-timed hug, or a patient’s worry over a nagging headache.
Maybe I’m easily engrossed in what’s around me, but I know that’s not so because I can be as oblivious as the next person.   Maybe I’m just plain simple, but those who know me don’t think so.
Maybe it’s because I try to wake each day feeling immense gratitude for whatever the day will bring so must stay alert to what is laid before me.

One thought on “The Want of Wonder

  1. Dorcee, I want you to know just how much I love getting my witness to hope emails with the little inspirations they provide. I really loved the one about the bird singing in the dawn it reminded me of a William Carlos Williams poem…
    ‘Its a strange courage
    that you give me morning star
    Shine alone in sunrise
    Toward which you lend no part’

    Thanks for the work you put into all of this Dorcee. You are always in my prayers.
