Wipe Away Every Craziness

In Christianity we have a hope – a vision for the future, where God “will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away…”

And another thing, I’ll bet every craziness will be wiped away.  And that someone like Michael Jackson’s inner torments will all be untwisted and brought round to all their best, most innocent starting places and fulfillments.   Today I spent some time watching Michael Jackson videos, from the child star singing “I Want You Back” to the likes of “Smooth Criminal” and “Dirty Diana” and the Billie Jean performance that introduced the “moonwalk”.

When my oldest was around two years old, our good friends got their daughter (same age as our son)  the Thriller album for her second or third birthday.    I never heard “Billie Jean” or “Beat It” outside the context of  our friends putting it on for the little kids to “dance” to, but of course I couldn’t NOT enjoy those beats.

I did not realize Michael Jackson is (was) my exact age.  It is hard for me to process that a person with such a huge personality and presence could die…just like that.  May he know and enjoy peace now.


About katiekind

Enjoying the second half of life. I have three sons who are the apples of my eye and a wonderful husband of 35 years--those are the important things. Long ago, out of the blue, I became a Christian. It was something I never planned on, but what joy it has been. I do website development and I like to read and garden and paint and I love beauty and truth.
