God’s Magna Doodle.

29 09 2009

Growing up I loved the magna doodle. I would spend hours drawing nothing because most of the doodling was spent trying to learn why those gray cubes were going black. How do they dooo itttt? Well, at least it was easy to erase any mistakes. I quick swipe and all mistakes were gone, a blank canvas and a whole realm of new possibilities. It’s almost inspiring in a way. In fact, i think thats why we loved the old ‘magna’ so much, the whole “go ahead and make mistakes” attitude totally took the pressure off. Not like those friggin creepy crawlers. I swear, eek the goo over the mold a little bit and BOOM! now nobody will ever know whether or not its a spider or a cockroach… good luck trying to scare someone with that.

Anyhoo, this morning I was fortunate enough to be able to start the day with the tude of the doodle as I got to see the sunrise over the ocean. Let me lett you that a new sun, over calm seas is what I believe to be God’s magna doodle. His reset button, if you will. The second i thought about this all i could do was be hopeful for a good day. Walking away from the beach with reassurance that God is in control and there is no mistake He cannot overlook. All the sins and indiscretions ive committed in the past and will commit in the future (im not perfect, i know this to be true). However, i know He is a God of mercy and grants the gift of salvation whether i screw up once or one thousand times.

Why the ramblings? Because this attitude carried through my entire day. I dont think ive left the house longer than 30 minutes today and normally that is the prime oppotunity for the disordered thoughts to start creeping in from around the corner. But not today. Why? because i started my day knowing God had forgotten my past and it would be stoopid of me to dwell on something that apparently doesn’t matter anyway. Yesterday is gone, tomorrow is uncertain. Life is today, and its looking to be a beautiul day at that.

*I baked muffins today and they were awesome. I already had three… but i think ill attack the gimpy one before i go to sleeps.

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. (Matt 6:34)
