I was burning off all the paper products last night that are left over as you deplete your cupboards and fridge on a daily basis This is that thing I do to help spare our land from the numerous "Mt. Trashmore's" that seem to keep popping up in our state, which does not necessarily make me GREEN but I, in my own little mind, feel that I am doing something to "help" our earth. Anyway, it was during this ritual of fire that I was enlightened by a magnificent observation by a child. Yeah, we adults just "think" we know everything! Eli, my stepson was poking around in the fire with a stick, as most of us do around here when there's a fire a burnin', when he lifted it from the coals, and as it sent smoke into the air, he said:
"Did you know that smoke is Gods soul?"
I cannot even remember what I was doing when he told me this but for a precious moment, the world and time stood still.
I looked at Eli and he was fixated on my eyes and then he so sweetly, simply smiled.
Now, I don't know what ya'll learned yesterday........
as we should each learn ONE new thing everyday,
but I was sent a message through an angel.
Ya'll have a good one today!
I'm looking for more stuff to burn!
