Just a funny story…. And God Created West Virginia

My brother sent this to me years ago and the author is unknown, but the feeling is still the same. I Love the idea that God made all things with foresight and the West Virginia was part of his plan.

And God Created West Virginia

God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the Archangel, found him, resting on the seventh day.

He inquired, “Where have you been Lord?”

God smiled deeply and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, “look Michael. Look what I’ve made.”

Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said, “What is it?”

“It’s a planet,” replied God,  “I’ve put life on it… I’m going to call it Earth and it’s going to be  a place to test  Balance.”

“Balance?” inquired Michael, ” I’m still confused”

God explained, pointing to different parts of the Earth. “For example northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe will struggle. Over here I have place a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of dark people.Balance in all things.

God continued pointing to different countries. “This one will be extremely hot. While this one will be very cold and covered in ice.”

The Archangel, impressed by God’s work,then pointed to a land area and said,”What is that one?”

” That is West Virginia, the most glorious place on earth. There beautiful mountains, rivers and streams,lakes and forests. the people from West Virginia will be handsome, modest, humorous and they are going to travel the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, and carriers of peace and producers of good things.”

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, “but what about balance God?” You said there would be balance…”

God smiled, “Right next to West Virginia is Washington ,D.C. Wait till you see what idiots I put there.”

Hope that we can all laugh at what happens in Washington. All of us here In West By God Virginia Do!
