Ever wonder if there really is a God? I think, at times, we may all have…
I now have proof, through the eyes of my six year old grandson, Jimmy:
Jimmy’s latest topic of conversation has been “how we know there is a God.” This is how our conversation went:
Jimmy: “Gramma, I know there is a God, because you told me so and you always tell me the truth. And, Gramma, I know how YOU know there is a God.”
Me: “How do I know, Jimmy?”
Jimmy: “Because when your mommy died, after she got to heaven, she climbed up on top of the highest cloud she could find and yelled down, “Hey Jannie! I know there is a God because I just saw Him with my own two eyes!”
Me: ~tears and a hug~
Thats how we know…
~with tears and a hug~
My mommy’s Jannie
What do you think of when you think of “the earth?” Mother Earth? The Good Earth? Earth Day?
I think of the gifts of our planet that she so wonderously and generously provides us; with or without our gratitude.
Today is not Earth Day. Earth Day is in April. April 22, I believe. There are many events that occur on Earth Day; and our earth certainly deserves a day of her own to be celebrated. But, why not celebrate our earth every day? It does not need to be a “great celebration.” A few minutes of gratitude for Mother Earth each morning as we wake, each evening as we drift off to sleep…
Do you have more than a few minutes? Maybe ten? I read a great article by Karen Talavera named Ten Minutes for Planet Earth. I invite you to read it, and consider how YOU will honor and thank our Mother Earth for ALL that she does for us. Without her, where would we be?
