The Adorable Jack-Jack

Straight to the heart.

That's how Jack-Jack made an impact on me when I first encountered him yesterday.

And I never never ever wish to recover.

This infant's innocence, laughter, and many funny, natural ways hit my heart right on-center.

I was Jack-Jack and he was me.

We're pure instincts, first base with stuff.

We both have many personalities that come forth depending on who or what we're with.

Different people and creatures elicit different reactions.

We're happily in our world, minding our own business, perpetually curious about most everything, and loving our families so.

We love huge chunks of cookies, our great "pacifier".

If you know anything about "Incredibles 2" you'd love this tiny guy, too.

That laughter, the character, and the innocence tickles your funny bone and touches your heart.

I hope he never grows up.

I thought I was five years old.

How wrong I was.

I'm much younger.

I'm Jack-Jack.

I'm just a baby.

We see things pretty much the same way.

We're good when we're with good people.

But boy, when we see bad people or injustice done, we get going.

Then our super powers come a-visitin'.

Too bad about the mistaken thief, the raccoon, though...

Don't you love to laugh?

Don't you love funny stuff?

True laughter is from the soul.

It springs from it.

Jack-Jack did that to me, like no other character -- real or cartoon -- ever did.

But I'm on the "happy baby" path, starting with the article I wrote on 14 June 2019. 

I thank God for reminding me of who I originally was.

I am Jack-Jack.

The Soul's Goal

I woke up today wanting to write an article about "the soul's goal".

Nothing could be simpler.

It's simple:
To be "ONE with God".

That's really our soul's goal no matter how much we deny or deviate from it.

Since we came from God, naturally, we go back to Him, too.

Everything we do on earth are merely ways to re-connect with Him in one form or the other -- through the work we do or the relationships we have.

We are seeking spiritual union with the Father.

At the end of our days, that's what happens.

Everyone goes back to The Father.

The GOAL has always been God.

And, of course, God played a sweet trick on me today.

As I searched for an appropriate image for this post, I was drawn in seconds to the image above.

I was tickled pink for that was EXACTLY how I felt with God -- a child standing on the Palm of His Hand, finding my balance, and yet so confident He will hold me up -- all so real and yet so symbolic.

We always played and laughed together.

He was always so Strong and Reliable.

Then I observed that the image came from a "Father's Day" Pinterest collection.


God wanted me to remember His Day, which will be this third Sunday of June -- 16 June 2019 -- even as in my heart every day is ALWAYS Father's Day.

So, I greet ALL fathers in this world and all the universes a HAPPY Father's Day each day -- may your lives continue to be more enriched than it already is!

That being that, the image became perfect for this post.

In everything I do with God at the helm, I felt like I hit a jackpot.

Yes, I'll forever be his happy, grateful, tickled daughter.

God is SOOOOOO Great!

How can He not be your singular goal when He Is All There Is?

Your work, your family, your friends, your accomplishments don't define you.

Only God can define us.

Focus your whole being on God and your soul will be immeasurably happy.

The challenges of life, the aches and pains of our body, the future still to be created cannot dampen the happiness you'll have when you've found God was in your heart all along.

We humans are a fallible sort.

God is Infallible.

That's why I always go straight to Him when I need Answers.

The Creator is the Best Guide and Father.

Forever full of LOVE.

And boat-loads of JOY!
