Family Man

Sometimes I wonder what the meaning of my life is. Why was I born into this world? What exactly am I to do with my life? What’s going to happen to me when I die? Am I on the right track? Why I do I wonder so much.

I think it’s because I have always been curious. My dad reminded me of this tonight as he recounted memories I had long since forgotten. Beautiful memories that I am grateful he still holds on to.

The answers to the questions above are simple. So simple they are sometimes difficult to accept. I, you, we are the meaning of life. God made us simply to be us. We are born into this world to realize that truth. When we die our bodies fade into the earth and our spirits reunite with God. Am I on the right track is not the right question. The real question is have I awoken to my journey? The answer is yes when you stop living for the destination and start living in the moment. The reason we wonder is because wondering is one of our greatest God given gifts. Wonder is what’s needed to bring this world in alignment with God’s original intent for it.

Tonight’s lesson is to remember and embrace that which makes life beautiful for you. For me it’s my family. There is nothing I would rather be than a family man right now.

This song and movie remind me of this.
