.: First Day of Spring :.

"It was said that people are often content to stay in the city making mud pies, when God wants to take them to the seashore to make sandcastles. I hope I'm not one of those people."

-C.S. Lewis

I love this quote. So often we sell ourselves short when we really need to remember whose image we were created in. Today I read a story by Max Lucado at work (may I just say that I love working in a bookstore?). The main character, Punchinello, is sad because the Wemmicks don't like him and put dots on him. He goes back to the toy maker and asks what is wrong with him. His creator simply tells him that he is wonderful in his eyes. He made no mistake when he made Punchinello. It's so comforting to know that this is how God feels about us. He knew what He was doing, and God doesn't make mistakes. As Mr. Lewis points out, sometimes we cannot see past our current surroundings. Mudpies can be great sometimes. However, we are failing to realize that God has created something even better for us to enjoy, the sandcastles. "Don't let the good get in the way of the best." I don't know who said that, but I think they have the right idea. Always remember that God sees the big picture, so what seems like a bad situation or failure right now just might be a stepping stone for what's to come.

So I suppose that's the end of my ramblings for today. God Bless.

All The Right Reasons - Nickelback

Look at this photograph
Every time I do it makes me laugh
How did our eyes get so red?
And what the hell is on Joey's head?

This is where I grew up
I think the present owner fixed it up
I never knew we ever went without
The second floor is hard for sneakin' out

This is where I went to school
Most of the time had better things to do
Criminal record says I broke in twice
I must've done it half a dozen times

I wonder if it's too late
Should I go back and try to graduate
Life's better now than it was back then
If I was them, I wouldn't let me in

Every memory of looking out the back door
I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
It's hard to say
It's time to say it
Goodbye, Goodbye
Every memory of walking out the front door
I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for

It's hard to say
It's time to say it
Goodbye, Goodbye

We used to listen to the radio
And sing along with every song we'd know
We said someday we'd find out how it feels
To sing to more than just the steering wheel

Kim's the first girl I kissed
I was so nervous that I nearly missed
She's had a couple of kids since then
I haven't seen her since God knows when

I miss that town
I miss their faces
You can't erase
You can't replace it
I miss it now
I can't believe it
So hard to stay
Too hard to leave it
If I could relive those days
I know the one thing that would never change

Look at this photograph
Every time I do it makes me laugh
Every time I do it makes me
