One of the things he talks about is that laughter is not only allowed in the spiritual life, but it should be required for it! We are all being called to laugh more, appropriately of course. We should laugh at ourselves, laugh at the things God brings us, and enjoy laughter with others.
They say that if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.
So, I do this all the time. Like now, I've got great plans in mind for me and AGA ... marriage, babies, and a long life together. However, I'm not sure that's the Lord's plan - or really even what I want. I am also very good at giving God an ultimatum. Lord, if not AGA then ... (and I fill in the blank). There are obviously only two options, how could he see more when I don't! Although, I know this isn't true - His plan is infinitely better than mine.
So, I digress - always the same thing for me ... worried about the future, where this is all headed, whether it's like the idea in my head - if it'll ever live up to it. What is marriage and babies aren't in His plan for me? What if in 21 years when I'm 47, we're still here, looking - just always looking and always waiting...
