The Sun, a long lost friend and acquaintance, rose slowly from the horizon as I watched silently and joyfully. The rise of a new day, the ending of an old one. I grinned to myself, alone on that beach. The waves gently nuzzled my feet, and the wind kissed my lips as it flew by. I felt the air's warmth, and felt the sudden feeling of happiness in the air. It made me want to shout for joy.
God sat there, watching His child, grinning. "He is pleased by the easiest of things, yet he always seems to understand the works." He told His archangel with joy in His voice. The Angel grinned at His side.
The air kept whispering to him so many stories, so many lovely comments, so many....but one stood out the most as they passed by. I sang:
"May my joy be given to the Lord,
For He has given me Life and Love.
Therefore, I am His, always and forever."
God's grinned widened even farther. "Hear that?" He asked. "He knows he is my creation, and a joyful one, at that."
