"Each man's life touches so many other lives..."

It's just been one of those days - a mish-mash day. (Try saying "mish-mash" five times fast ^_^) Some parts good, some parts bad, some parts in between.

Take sitting out in the sun for a few hours over lunch as an example. Now that's good. Really good.

Take watching It's A Wonderful Life with popcorn. Now that's good too.

It's A Wonderful Life is one of those "feel-good" movies. It's not exactly tense, or action-filled, but leaves you with this warm fuzzy feeling inside your stomach. Like this one line that Clarence (the angel) said...
Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?
You know...you ever get that feeling that you don't matter? That no-one appreciates you?

The truth is...

You MATTER.


To your family, to your friends - but especially to God. You MATTER to Him.
God loved the world so much that He gave His one and only Son so that whoever believes in Him may not be lost, but have eternal life. John 3:16
He LOVES you, and He wants to know you, and He appreciates you more than you could ever know...Ahh. That's a kind of security that I couldn't do without. :-)

A great reminder! And "It's a Wonderful Life" is one of my family's all-time favorite movies. We have a tradition of watching it on Christmas Eve, though any time is a good time. :)

How true, how many lives are touched by each life- be it in a good way, or a bad way. But isn't that exciting in a way? We can make an impact wherever we go!
