We do the same thing to God all the time. We love on Him. Pray to Him. Learn about Him. Most of the time. Then there are times that we don’t. Times when the only talking we do to Him is asking. Times when we don’t talk to Him at all. For some reason we feel like He gets mad. Like He is standing on a cloud looking down on us in disgust at the moment we realize how we have been treating Him. Maybe it was growing up in the church that for the last few decades has been a little more about the rules and a little less about the relationship. But if God really is our father like the bible says….I promise He isn’t mad. He isn’t even disappointed. He is loving. He is caring. He is just silently waiting for you to love Him back. Simple thought, but one that I had never fully understood till Arlis came into my life. So next time you realize that you have taken advantage of the relationship you have with God…don’t fix it because you feel guilty, or because it’s the right thing to do. Fix it because you want God to feel the same way I do when Arlis smiles at me and buries his head in my chest. Be the 99% (taking back the saying!).
peace – love – recycle
