    I have had this on a Server for YEARS, and thought that it might just be appropriate for HERE....

    An Interview with God

    I dreamed I had an interview with God. "Come in," God said. "So, you
    would like to interview Me?"

    "If you have the time," I said. God smiled and said:

    "My time is eternity and is enough to do everything; what questions do
    you have in mind to ask me?"

    "What surprises you most about mankind?" God answered: "That they get
    bored of being children, are in a rush to grow up, and then long to be
    children again.

    That they lose their health to make money and then lose their money to
    restore their health.

    That by thinking anxiously about the future, they forget the present,
    such that they live neither for the present nor the future.

    That they live as if they will never die, and they die as if they had
    never lived..."

    God's hands took mine and we were silent for while and then I asked,
    "As a parent, what are some of life's lessons you want your children to

    God replied with a smile: "To learn that they cannot make anyone love
    them. What they can do is to let themselves be loved.

    To learn that what is most valuable is not what they have in their
    lives, but who they have in their lives.

    To learn that a rich person is not the one who has the most, but is one
    who needs the least.

    To learn that it only takes a few seconds to open profound wounds in
    persons we love, and that it takes many years to heal them.

    To learn to forgive by practicing the withdrawal of judgment.

    To learn that there are persons that love them dearly, but simply do not
    know how to express or show their feelings.

    To know how ineffably loved you are by Me."

    Beautiful post BT. Reminds me of a book i read some time ago called "The Shack" by Wm. Paul Young. The book explains a very wonderful relationship you can have with God.

    Thanks for sharing.
