“Were there no God we would be in this glorious world with grateful hearts and no one to thank.” -Christina Rossetti
This is just a short observation. A little life note.
So, if God isn’t real – so what? I live a happier life with Him. If He doesn’t exist, I really am not phased. I mean, I AM phased – but not enough to live life without Him.
God is someone to go to in distress. When I’m lonely, He accompanies me. When I’m empty, He fills me. When things are rough, He provides peace for me.
What about those moments when we feel so very grateful for everything?
We’re so grateful, we could kiss the ground we walk on, hug the walls around us, thank the doors and the heat and the cold and every cell in our body and our hair and the blueness of the sky and the greenness of the grass and just EVERYTHING. All that stuff we so often take for granted.
You know what I mean? What Christina Rossetti means? God made it all. Sometimes, just as a human thought process, we feel incredibly grateful for everything.
So if we don’t believe in God, who are we grateful to…?
