Tonight at church this piece of a Calvin & Hobbes comic strip was shown. The message was about "drifting" and how you go about your daily life like "normal," then one day things aren't as they should be.

The preacher also compared it to an ocean current. How you are at the beach one day and you set your stuff down then go out in the water and before you know it you are down the beach a ways, away from your original starting place and you didn't realize you had drifted so far. There is an unseen force acting on us at all times. 

I thought this message was a perfect illustration of how we are so wrapped up in the world and get lost and drift away from what's truly important. 

I always need a pull back into the original starting place. I think everyone does! 
Hope you all have a wonderful week!


  1. I go to Southland also! And I loved tonights message. I was going to blog about it also. The messages always start my week off right and pulls me back to a place I need to be.
