COT- Thy Kingdom Come

I spent some time Saturday night after the M and 2.0’s were asleep outside by my firepit enjoying some beverages and the sights and sounds of fireworks around my house.  At one point, I just had one of those moments where I looked up into the sky, felt extreme peace, and an immense feeling of gratitude for the blessings in my life.  It was a glimpse of Heaven.  Spontaneously, I prayed an Our Father, and when I came to the line, “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven” I stopped to reflect on what that meant to me. 

It is easy, sometimes, to fall into a habit of prayer where I am constantly asking God to make things better.  I feel helpless and need His intervention to make the conditions in my life and the lives of others better.  To make earth more like Heaven.  I believe that we as humans have an obligation to hold up our end of the bargain.  High impact men and women can make their daily interactions more like Heaven simply by treating everyone they encounter as if they are already there.  No matter what your belief system is or what you may view Heaven to be, you can play a role in making your life and the lives of those around you more heavenly and divine simply by treating them with love, kindness, and mutual respect.  I feel that at the micro level, if we all approached our daily lives that way, the macro effect would be a world that more resembles whatever your view of Heaven may be. 

I prayed us out with an Our Father.  Here’s to good days and better tomorrow’s!

Cheers and SYITG,

Mother Goose
