When you look into the mirror, think not upon how others perceive you; instead, think about how God sees you. To Him, you are the most beautiful thing on earth. And that's all that matters.

"What's life about anyway", is the question in my mind. Is it about giving all you can to make the word a better place to live? Is it about self-satisfaction and self-gratification; doing what I want and trying to make myself happy? I just don't know.
I look ahead on the road of life and see so many paths I could take; too many choices! Some are broad and straight, while others are narrow and winding. Some go uphill, some go down, and others are hidden by trees and brush. Some look easy to follow with no great destination, while others have ends so inviting, but paths filled with rocks and thornbushes.
I wonder then, is the end really worth the pain and struggle? Seemingly all these roads have tollbooths at their starts and some farther on as well. Many accept a toll greater than I can afford. This does nothing to help my decision, but may even hinder it. Mayhap I have a destiny down one of those roads...
What is my purpose on this earth? Where does my passion lie? Which path do I traverse?

Hi Beth! I would say life is all about bringing Glory to God. I think that can happen on any number of paths! For instance, right now He's (slowly but surely) glorifying himself in my life by weeding things like impatience and selfishness out (through parenthood) and teaching me how to raise the next generation for Him (I pray this is what happens!) So I think he put us on this earth to bring glory to Himself. Wherever you're at today that can happen. And it's exciting. I have no idea if I'm talking about the same thing that you are...but I thought I'd comment so that you knew I read your blog. :) Bless you Beth!
