God definitely has a sense of humor. As a writer I know this because He always gives me the deepest, most profound, and touching insights when I am far away from anything that I can write them down on. I think He must smile while I strive to keep them straight in my aging brain until I can put them on paper. Perhaps this is the way He makes sure that they settle into my soul as well.
This happened to me again today. I was driving my car miles from home. The sky
was clear and the shining sun bathed the hillsides in light. It was so beautiful that I
started to think of this wonderful world we all live in. What kind of place would this world be if there
was no fear?
What kind of place would this world be if there was no selfishness? What kind of
place would this world be if we all could just love each other unconditionally? There would
be no war. There would be no hunger. There would be no hatred. We would all care for each
other. We would all help each other. We would all work together. The world would be alive
with the sound of children playing, friends laughing, and people singing. What a glorious
place this world would be then.
Suddenly, I heard the laughing voice of God in my heart and mind. It said, "such
a place does exist my child. It is called Heaven. It is your job, though, to help bring
Heaven down here to Earth."
I drove home keeping those words alive in my soul where they will stay forever.
As soon as I could I sat down to share them with you as well. May you always live fearlessly.
May you always live selflessly. May you always live lovingly. May you always strive to
do your job well and bring a little more Heaven down here to Earth every single day.
