Mentsch Tracht, Gott Lacht

You'll never convince me that God does not have a wonderful sense of humor.  I offer up as evidence:

  • The grand, imaginative playfulness of Creation:  Giraffes and platypuses -- 'nuf said.
  • As manifested in His children:  G.K. Chesterton, whose benevolent jollity seems to me reflective of the Father's heart.
  • And, in the spirit of the Yiddish proverb that titles this post:  A rainy June 15 in Renton, WA with temps barely cresting 50° F.
The very firmament of His Kingdom must shake continually with the co-mingled laughter of angels and the saints!  As C.S. Lewis wrote: You've no idea how good an old joke sounds when you take it out again after a rest of five or six hundred years.  I don't know about you, but I can't wait to get to heaven!

I'm jealous! I want some temps in the 50's again.

Are you having a good summer? We've been soooo busy!
