My 7-year-old grandson enjoyed a Disney movie the other day. After it was over, Walt Disney came on to talk about the film. Kiley, his mom~ my eldest daughter~ :-)~ mentioned to Eli that the man speaking was Walt Disney, the creator of Disneyland.
“What?” Eli said. His face was in shock mode. “That can’t be.” Some gasping coughs followed that declaration. “God made Disneyland, Mom! What are you saying?”
“Eli?” Kiley asked not knowing if her son was going to live. “What are you talking about? God did not make Disneyland. Walt Disney did!! Why would you think that?”
Wide eyed and flushed he answered, “Because IT IS THE HAPPIEST PLACE on earth! Mom, come on. You’re kidding.”
Eli has never been to Disneyland. However, as we all have just heard, he thinks it’s next to heaven~ incredible!
I love his thinking. He, in his innocence and imagination believes that if something is that wonderful then it must be made by God.
That is right thinking.
This thinking coincides with some of my recent thoughts that I shared with a friend last week.
The colors, textures, smells, sounds and wonders of creation caused me to stand in the middle of my yard, raise my hands to the heavens and worship the Creator.
Birds singing to the heavens, daffodils raising their sunny faces heavenward, and even the droplets of warm rain seemed to fall up instead of down all in worship of their creator.
Romans 1:20~ For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
His eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen…That’s who I saw.
I want to see Him more!!
