The laughter of God
Students and other will sometimes say to me that God must be chuckling at our efforts to understand and talk about Him. I agree in this sense. He is chuckling in the same way I chuckle when my twenty month old son points at a truck and say "Guck!" Mine is not a laughter of condescension or scorn, but one of sheer delight at the fundamental, but imperfect success of my child at growing in understanding of reality.
