Just for FUN!
I remember when I was in high school at summer camp and one of the "speakers" (it was a Christian camp and I think he was the pastor) did not want us to go home and tell our parents we had fun. He wanted us to relay the message of what God had done in our lives - which was a valid point to make. However, this word "fun," then had a negative connotation in my mind, which has stuck with me for all these years...
So I did what I do with words - transforming them with an acronym to better suit me and make them more meaningful to others. And this is what I came up with for something I like to have, but once was made to feel bad for having it... Never again, Mr. Preacher, it's OK to just have FUN when it means: Freedom Undeserved, and Never-ending!
That's the kind of FUN I think this verse is talking about, and that all Creation is waiting to have!!!
"For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God."(Romans 8:20, 21 NIV)
