Today at church the pator talked about "glimpses of our future glory." He said that these are those moment in life where, just for a second, you are filled with joy, and wonderment, and awe. I am not a traditional church girl, but in this case I know exactly what he’s talking about. It’s those wonderful moments where you feel like you could write a song, or conquer the universe, or something even better. Steven Chbosky describes it perfectly in his novel The Perks of Being a Wallflower when the main character says, "in that moment, we were infinite." Today I’m recording a few of the times that I felt these "glimpses."
- Walking across LSU’s campus on a fall day on my way to a football game.
- Lying on my back, looking at the stars, in the middle of the country.
- Lying in bed with my husband, my cat, and my dog on a Saturday morning.
- Reading the Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis.
- Driving the winding road to my house with the perfect song blaring on the radio.
- Singing my brains out to a wonderful song.
- Hearing the verses read at a friend’s wedding and knowing exactly what they’re talking about.
- Listening to "Satellite" by Dave Matthews, "Yellow Led Better" by Pearl Jam, or "Time of Year" by Better Than Ezra.
- Watching a child take the concept you’ve taught them and use it on their own.
- Pulling into the driveway of you very-own home (not a rental).
- Sitting by the ocean with Bob Marley on the stereo, a cool drink close by, and a book in your lap.
Here’s hoping there’s many more in my future.
