"If you want to make God laugh, then tell Him your plans"
We had so much fun last Halloween when we hosted our Fear is not a Factor party
that all year long the kids and I have been
to host another fun gathering this Halloween!
Well today is supposed to be that day,
and I've since learned that if you wanna make God laugh...
then tell Him your plans
What had been our plan all year?
To host a movie-themed party
What movie was our theme based on?
"The Wiz" (with Diana Ross and Michael Jackson)
(but some things got in the way of our planning and we decided to hold off on a party)
and the irony
of that didn't even hit me until yesterday as I was explaining to a coworker
what our plan had been,
and why we were cancelling the plan
and when she laughed and pointed out that we had just lived the movie
by experiencing our own "we're not in Kansas anymore" moment
I remembered the saying...
Wanna make God laugh?
tell Him your plans
And although we still "plan" to host our "Wizard of Oz" party someday
we know that it won't be today
So for now we'll just...
pop some corn
cuddle up together on our new couch
watch the movie
while simply enjoying the fact that...
"There's no place like home"
