Virginia with Grandpa Paul
"This, then, is how you should pray: 'Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.'"
School, where we live, starts early - August 1 - to be exact. That's not the case in so many other parts of the country, especially up north. So when our granddaughter, Virginia Rose, is invited to join her Aunt Susan, Uncle Rantz, Grandpa Paul, and her cousins on a trip to Disney World, even though it means missing a week of school, her parents find it impossible to say, "No."
After all, it's Virginia's first visit to the Magic Kingdom, and at nine-years-old, she is guaranteed to make and keep precious memories to last a lifetime.
Wow! Such a happy girl! I can't wait until Virginia is back home, and can tell us all about her fabulous adventures at "The Most Magical Place on Earth!"
While Disney World may claim to be the Magic Kingdom, there is only one kingdom that eclipses all the rest in grandeur and majesty: God's Kingdom. The kingdom we long to experience here on earth when we pray The Lord's Prayer.
And you know what? We can, and without traveling any farther than our own hearts and minds. Let us open them wide to allow God's love and grace to flow into and through us, praying to do His will, caring for others as He cares for all of us.
If each of us would do these things, I think we'd find ourselves smack-dab in the midst of God's Kingdom.
His Miracle Kingdom.
No magic required!
