I'm a people watcher.
Lately, when I watch people, I am drawn to the way they walk.
For two years now my own walking has been hampered. I am forced to think about how I walk every single day. Tasks I need to accomplish are organized by how many steps it will take to complete them. So, when I people watch now I watch how they walk.
Here is what I observe:
Most walking people pay no attention to walking. It doesn't even cross their minds how they are
going to get from A to B. They just go. And I used to be just like them.
Which brings me to the question:
How many other seemingly involuntary functions does my body perform daily, hourly, secondly, that I take completely for granted?
Hearing? Sight? My beating heart? My texting thumb? The fact that I can breathe?
These are no small things.
I will praise You because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful, and I know this very well.
-- Psalm 139:14
