Loved this paraphrase from G.K. Chesterton that was part of worship in The Upper Room Chapel this morning:
Children have abounding vitality,
because they are in spirit fierce and free;
therefore they want things repeated and unchanged.
They always say, “Do it again;” and the grown-up person
does it again until he or she is nearly dead.
For grown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony.
But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony.
It is possible that God says every morning, “Do it again” to the sun; and every evening, “Do it again” to the moon.
It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike;
it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never gotten tired of making them.
It may be that God has the eternal appetite of infancy;
for we have sinned and grown old,
and our God is younger than we.
