Post-Liturgy Belly Laughter and China
What a wonderful morning we had this morning. It was capped off by a deliriously-giggly, joy-filled ride home from Church. The girls each have two small stuffed puppies, who, when their left ears are pressed, alternately bark, growl and pant. I don’t know how or why, but somehow for some reason, the girls began to press their doggies’ ears in tandem, and being at the same point in the respective cycle, each happened to bark, growl and pant in unison–and somehow that just cracked us all up. This lasted, I have to say, for several minutes, and many city blocks! I laughed so hard, tears came to my eyes, and the girls were reduced to little more than full-body, gasping giggles. What a precious, precious moment.
And then just a moment ago, Sofie was singing in accompaniment (or what approximates such for her) to Divna’s Christos Anesti. And I told her how beautiful her singing was, that it was as pretty as Divna’s. I then told Sofie I loved her, to which she replied, “I love you as far as China.” I think the response to that is something like, “I love you as far as the moon,” but I was too choked up.
The Lord has so filled my day with blessings, that I am just speechless.
Glory to Jesus Christ. Glory forever.
