Okay, I'll admit it. If God had not converted me through His Divine Mercy.....I think popcorn would have done it. Corn, I can understand. It is fodder for cattle and other animals. But, popcorn? The only reason that I can see of why He would allow corn to pop is for the utter delight of his children. I imagine the awe on the faces of the people who first realized (by accidentally leaving a dried out ear of corn too close to a fire) that corn popped. I can picture someone gingerly putting it to his mouth, tasting it, and realizing that it was good. A couple of months back, I was flooded with what I call "God Grins" over this. Our Lord has a wonderful sense of humor; to be caught up in love for Him over something as little as popcorn has shown me this. I could feel Him smiling inside me.
