Hearts Full of Love and Smiles to Share

God created humanity in God’s own image, in the divine image God created them, male and female God created them.
Genesis 1:27

I am curious – do you have a best friend? Or two or three?
Best friends can come in interesting packages-
male, female, young, old, dog, cat, hamster, rat, bunny, snake, favorite lovie.
No matter how they come – they are gifts to be thankful for!

One of my bestest friends in the world always gives me the gift of laughter.  No matter how sad or mad or glad I am – he can always find a way to give me the giggles.  Sometimes it is with a joke, sometimes a simple smile, and sometimes a silly action but always-always-always with a heart full of love and always, always, always the laughter comes!  Yes, best friends are really good gifts.

I imagine that when God created people, God just knew they could be amazing-bestest friends.  I think God created people to be best friends with Him and one another.
Why else would God have created people with hearts full of love and smiles to share?

God knew that we could be gifts to one another. God knows that every time people share a smile with one another, what they are really doing is sharing His love!

And now that I think about it, all of my friendships have started with a smile.  And all of my friendships have given me a chance to know God’s love more.  I am thankful for all of my friends. I am thankful most epecially for my bestest friend God.  God always fills my heart with love and whenever I feel God’s love, the simple smile comes and always- always-always the laughter comes too.

I am curious how did you meet your best friend? With a smile?
Which friend makes you laugh? Which friend fills your heart with love?


On the second day, God continued to create, and it was hard to tell where the water began and where it ended.  The blueness of it all got tangled up in each other!   And God, being God, and not afraid to organize (especially unruly chaos) created beautiful space where clouds could form and the eternal blueness could stretch out.  God called this space “sky” and it was heavenly!

“God called the dome Sky.”

Finally the water and the sky could work and play together.  The water offered up tiny droplets to the sky.  The Sky was so filled with thankfulness that it exploded with joy and filled the space with big beautiful clouds.  And before you knew it, the clouds in the sky expanded with joy and thankfulness also, and burst forth little thankful drops of rain.  The rain from the clouds flittered and danced in the sky, and rested upon the water, reminding them of their special friendship.

God watched and smiled at the harmony.   On that second day of God’s creating, friendships were forming and the world was taking shape, just the way it needed to be.  I am reminded of the world being formed whenever I look at the clouds above.  What do you see when you look up?  Do you see clouds and the blue sky?  Do you imagine animals and flowers in the clouds?  Do you look beyond the clouds and imagine God up in the heavens smiling down on you – so thankful for your friendship?

Oh – and we’re still in Genesis Chapter 1 and beginning to wonder about Day 3…
