Who doesn’t love bubbles? There is something inexplicably joy bringing in the act of blowing and popping bubbles. Whether big or small they always draw us in. There’s something about the iridescent colours as the lights shines on and through soap bubbles.
Usually it seems when there are bubbles around there are usually children (except for weddings). Personally, I love watching my grandson run around and around in wonder doing all those things. It’s also interesting at a wedding with bubbles to see the little kid come out in the adults.
Whether as a child, teen or adult, it brings a wonder-like joy and fills the heart with excitement. Some want to pop them. Some want to keep them up in the air. Some want to watch as the kids (and adults) run around and try catching them. Some prefer to chase them. Some want to catch them, even on your tongues. I have it on good authority from my grandson that they do NOT taste good.
Ever wondered about the science behind bubbles? The outside and inside surfaces of a bubble consist of soap molecules. A thin layer of water lies between the two layers of soap molecules, sort of like a water sandwich with soap molecules for bread all held together by surface tension. They work together to hold air inside. Whoosh it through the air so that the bubble follows and grows behind it. Try liquid dish soap for good results.
God is so incredible to build in us a simple but intricate curiosity to bring happiness to our daily lives through the smallest things, like bubbles. We serve a God of details.
And don’t even get me started on bubble wrap… that cracking sound is irresistible!
