God's Clown

This morning I was stunned at how God used a clown to speak to me and Alet. We know this clown and after his show I went up to speak to him. When we made to leave he walked with us with the words "I just want to bless your wife"

And then while speaking to us he made this balloon flower and gave it to Alet whilst writing on the leaf :Luke 12:24. Me and Alet both had to swallow hard to stop the tears. Not that I think that he knew or noticed. But today God used a clown to speak to us.

And so while he spoke to us/her he quoted these words :

22 Then turning to his disciples, Jesus said, "So I tell you, don't worry about everyday life--whether you have enough food to eat or clothes to wear.
23 For life consists of far more than food and clothing.
24 Look at the ravens. They don't need to plant or harvest or put food in barns because God feeds them. And you are far more valuable to him than any birds!
25 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? Of course not!
26 And if worry can't do little things like that, what's the use of worrying over bigger things?
27 "Look at the lilies and how they grow. They don't work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are.
28 And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, won't he more surely care for you? You have so little faith!
29 And don't worry about food--what to eat and drink. Don't worry whether God will provide it for you.
30 These things dominate the thoughts of most people, but your Father already knows your needs.
Luke 12: 22 - 30

Now I know that Alet and I took away different things from this encounter. I will not comment on her side as I know that she will do so on her blog , but I will tell of my experience.

I was amazed that someone can be so in tune with God that God can use them to give us this message. I was stunned by the fact that God used this man and this flower to speak to us. And I was so touched by the love and care in this clown's voice while he spoke to us.

Today I met a clown and a man who lives close to God.

The first post

The first post on a new blog is always the most difficult. I have so much to say. But how to start. And where to start. What to tell and what to leave. And so for now I will not say much.

My story I will tell. In due time. I am not much of a writer and so do not expect too much in the form of literary prose. I do not promise to post on a daily basis , but I will post occasionally. About things that bug me, or things that happen to me , or things I feel. An in all I hope that you will be able to see a normal human being trying to make sense of, and live life according to, God's will.

Enough said for now.
