I find it interesting how your perspective can shift. For example. My 'world' generally is my house and about a 4 mile radius surrounding my house. My town is a fairly small one and I often run into people that I know. I'm recognized and known by name (as well as the kid's name) by the employees at the gym, the librarians, the dry cleaner, people at my church and sometimes at the grocery store. It's a nice feeling to be known and to know people. Yesterday I was feeling pretty big in this world of mine. Then, last night as Brian and I lay in bed chatting we started talking about our trip to Europe. We were talking about climate and season changes depending on where on the Earth you are, I was thinking about all the cultural, currency, and language differences and suddenly I felt very very small. I liked it, I liked that change of perspective. I think maybe it was God's way of reminding me that I'm just one little thread that is weaving in and out of the thread's of other people's lives that together make up this large tapestry of the world that He is designing. God is good.

My thoughts shifted (I couldn't fall asleep then) and I was reminded of a quote from my favorite movie, (by the way, can you name the movie?)

"Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life. Well, valuable but
small. And sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I
haven't been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a
book, when shouldn't it be the other way around? I don't really want an answer.
I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So good night, dear

I'm doing exactly what I want to do so don't read too much into that quote, I just like it. I think I like it because of the context it was written. Like I said, it is my favorite movie. I'll leave you with some completely unrelated photos of our egg dying adventure this morning.
