This is a good time to talk about optimism. I suppose you could say that God is the eternal Optimist, because nothing is impossible for God; therefore, God can continue changing things until God gets exactly what God wants. That means, God will hopefully continue working on us until we finally become the persons God created us to be. Truly, only God can put a period at the end of a person’s name.
As a Christian, I may be a short-term pessimist, but I am a long-term optimist! What is an optimist? An optimist has been defined as one who believes things cannot get worse. I don’t like that definition, for being an optimist, that definition would render me a fool, and optimism foolish. And optimism is anything but foolish.
