A friend wrote on her facebook page yesterday:

So I was talking to God about some desires I have for things lots of people already have, and acquired easily, and which I can’t make happen on my own. He can, though. And He hasn’t. “So what part of My goodness aren’t you trusting?” He said. And I said, “Um, the good part.” He laughed. And it sorta felt like a hug.

I love that … and I know exactly what she means. God has such a wonderful sense of humor!

I think sometimes we forget about that side of Him. Yesterday I was reading Genesis 2:19:

Now the LORD God had formed out of the ground all the wild animals and all the birds in the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds in the sky and all the wild animals.

Picture that … God bringing all of the animals before Adam and letting him name them! Can’t you see them laughing and simply enjoying their time together, no care in the world other than the beauty around them and the love between them?

I know God loves spending time like that with each one of us. Imagine His joy when we set aside time just to be. with. Him.

Take time today to look for little blessings, to breathe a word of thanks, and to spend time alone, in the quiet. Maybe today isn’t a day to laugh … maybe it is to mourn or to rest or to petition or to surrender.

But laughter has its time too. There is no more beautiful sound than the laughter of loved ones; it is one of the things I miss most about my dad. I can’t wait to hear his laugh again, and to hear God’s laughter without the veil of this world between us … it is something I greatly anticipate.
