How much of our life to we spend wanting things?

Me: A new kitchen. A new car.  A new couch. More friends.  More date nights.  Less fat.  Cuter hair.

We want and we want and we want…

Until one day the thing we want most is not there.  We can never get it again.  We can argue and beg and cajole and save our money for the rest of eternity and we cannot have it.

So we bargain with God, not because we know it will work but it somehow makes us feel a bit better.  “Lord I would die a thousand deaths just to see him for one more day.  Just to hold him one more time.  One. More. Time. Anything God…please….”

There is nothing I can do.

Why did I spend so much time wanting? Stupid. Stupid. Stupid things.

All I want is my Lucas.

“ALL FLESH IS LIKE GRASS, AND ALL ITS GLORY LIKE THE FLOWER OF GRASS. THE GRASS WITHERS, AND THE FLOWER FALLS OFF, BUT THE WORD OF THE LORD ENDURES FOREVER.

I Peter 1: 24-25
