They've worn them for 2 days straight now, in this 30+ degree summer heat. Perfect for both daytime galavanting and nighttime sleeping. What could be better?
See -- I am making all things new. (Revelation 21:5)
|note the dead grass underfoot that needs to be made new|
|2 little monkeys wearing pillowcases|
See, I am making all things new!
This text from the book of Revelation was one of the themes at the Mennonite Church Canada Kids' Assembly where I volunteered 2 weeks ago. We had a great time dreaming of a new world filled with joy and thousands of kindnesses, and devoid of sorrow. It's so refreshing to hear kids' perspectives about the way the world should or could be. They just seem to make sense.
One kid's dream was of a world where bombs were made of bubblegum. Another wanted everyone to be able to smell fresh flowers. Someone else wanted the rich people to feed the poor and give them a place to sleep at night. Where heaven and earth will meet.
See! I am making all things new.
"Heaven is born on earth in a thousand invisible kindnesses offered every day."
- Wayne Muller
Today I'm grateful for this new day. Even though it's stinking hot outside.
What something will become of this (so far) nothing day?
