Happiest Place on Earth?
I've been to Downtown Disney three times since I started college...but I've never made it farther than the parking lot. (The first two times, it was too crowded. Today, I had a zoom meeting with my spiritual director/mentor while my friends were there...but it was worth it!)
My spiritual director mentioned the fact that it's interesting that Disneyland is called "the happiest place on earth." Although that's a good advertising motto, it just simply isn't true. I have a lot of happy memories from visiting Disneyland as a kid, but I remember thinking that it's never been the happiest place on earth for me. I mentioned this fact to my family when I was about 8 years old. They responded, "If it isn't Disneyland, then where is your happiest place on earth?" Home. My favorite place to be in the whole world was home. As I was reminded of this today, I noticed that my answer has changed. My home is split between two places now (Biola and my actual house). So that got me thinking—where is my happiest place on earth now?
Almost immediately, the answer came to me. My happiest place on earth is right here, in the arms of my Heavenly Father, no matter where my physical body is. In this way, anywhere I am can be the happiest place on earth.
Where is your happiest place on earth?
