An atheist scientist came to God and said, "We've figured out how to make a man without you."
God said, "OK, let me see you do it."
So the atheist bent down to the ground and scooped up a handful. But God stopped him and said, "Oh, no you don't. Get your own dirt!"
I must confess, I stole this joke from a friends Facebook post. But when I pasted on this blog I noticed something unexpected. The simple truth that God really is everywhere, reaching out to us to get us to enjoy the life we've been given to have fun in.
The hard part is being able to get through the clutter that gets in our way from seeing God right here and right now. We have to live daily in the presence of God by being present with ourself and with others, who like you and me are made in the same divine image, with the same divine DNA called love.
Go play in the world.
Be present. Be alive. Be alert.
Be grateful and thankful and mindful.
Be full. And beautiful.
