An unknown author has written,
"The gods we worship write their names
on our faces."
What kind of face shall we wear today?
The face of fear...fear that stops us
from growing in love, and stops us from
sharing that love?
The face of anger...anger that disorganizes
and disentigrates our personalities, our lives,
and our homes into unrecognizable messes?
The face of condemnation...condemnation
that degrades ourselves and others and binds
us down into the pit of self-pity?
Let us not wear any of these faces of gloom
Instead, let us remember that we, all of us,
everyone, have been created in the image of
a loving Heavenly Father.
And, He wears a face of joy, peace, tenderness,
forgiveness and love.
In God, the frown does not abound...
And, in us, it is our laughter He is after.
