Reach for the Globe!

Why do we say, "reach for the stars" when we all know good and well that we never will!  Anyone else out there tired of reaching for the unreachable stars?  I sure am.  I'm just going to settle for enjoying the view and getting on with enjoying my life here on the planet Earth.  Don't get me wrong, now, it's great to be reaching and growing and striving for positive change.... it's just that we can't get obsessed with it and miss the point of just enjoying the moment.  Every moment we have with each other as human beings should be cherished!  Don't wait for the dream vacation or the trip to the zoo or a fancy date to start enjoying one another.  Enjoy one another as you do the dishes and as you clean up and as you walk along the road and as you rise up and so forth in daily work and daily play and daily life....  How wonderful and fun and exciting life could really be if we just simply embraced all the  moments that we had with one another.  Even the hard ones, the lonely ones, the tired ones, the trying ones, the ones that maybe we'd like to forget...  well, I'm on another rabbit trail...

Back to questioning the wisdom of the phrase, "reach for the stars"...
I say, the stars reach us!  The light from the closest stars you see left four years ago to get to your eye.  I have great news!  No more reaching for the stars!  They come to you!  And even more amazing then this is that God created the stars on the fourth day of creation, fully functional!  Fully able to penetrate how ever many light years away in one breath!  How could the earth possibly have been created in six literal days?  How could the entire Universe run and function on such exact laws that nothing runs amiss?  How could man not see the power and might of His loving Creator displayed in such detail in these last days with all the technology at his disposal?!  How is it that we miss so much yet have so many answers?   

Every new home school year brings a new verse on which I must focus.  This year it is found in Joshua 1:9 and says, "Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee withersoever thou goest."  There is no where that man goes that God has not been there already!  I love it! 

Give up reaching for the stars and GO FOR THE GLOBE!  Everyone needs to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ...  the work is done!  Spread the news.  We don't have to be good.  We don't have to earn God's favor.  Jesus death, shed blood, and resurrection is enough.  We are co-heirs with Jesus.  This is awesome and worth shouting from the mountaintops or from my computer if that's all I've got.
