There is a God!

Life Design - My Journey to Higher GroundEver 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…

Gratitude for our Earth

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?
