He is Good

I have been wondering at the goodness of God. 
Not wondering as in,
"I wonder if He is good?"
But wondering as in,
"I am filled with wonder at how good He really is!"
I want to see the beauty that is all around
with eyes that marvel at God's creation.
Water didn't have to be wet.
Air didn't have to be free.
Clouds didn't have to move.
People didn't have to be beautiful.
Christmas didn't have to be about 
Heaven invading Earth.
Love didn't have to be central.
So I say with the psalmist, 
"Surely goodness and love will follow me 
all the days of my life."
Thank You, Father, that You are good
and that You love Your children.
What shall I return to the Lord 
for all His goodness to me? Ps 116
I can only give You that which is already Yours.
I give You my whole heart.
