What IS life like?
A box of chocolates? Sweet, yummy, melts in the sun?
A bag of chips? Salty and filling but leaves your hands dirty?
A camera? Capturing the good moments but getting out of focus during action shots?
A blanket? Keeping you warm on cold nights until your spouse rolls over and takes it with him?
A Bird? Flying free in the beautiful blue sky until he ‘hears the call of nature’?
To me life is like all of that (and so much more). You see, life has the good moments – the wonderful moments you want to last forever, the sweet moments that fill your soul, warm your heart and help you soar. But life also has the bad moments – the make you fat, feel dirty, chill you to the bone, blurry poop-head times that make you ask – WHY ME?
It’s because every moment, the good and the bad, the sweet and the sticky, the savory and the greasy, teaches us something. It helps us grow as humans. It helps us become who God wants us to become. It prepares us for the future and saves us from our past.
Life is like the most magical thing that can happen to us. Because it happens TO us. Think about that one.
