After church today, my husband and I felt in the mood for some Chinese food. I cannot tell you how many years we have gone to these restaurants and at the end of the meal, had fun with the reading of the fortune cookies. Some of them can be so funny and at times, some can be quite profound.
Never before have we got the same little saying. Till today, that is.
"Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing".
We laughed when we realized we had both gotten the same cookie! And then we looked at each other kind of puzzled.
What does this mean? Does this mean it is high time we do something all wild and crazy like maybe parachute out of an airplane?
Bungee jump or parasail?
Nah, I say...it's just time we pay the cashier and hurry home so we can take a nap! That's adventurous enough for this almost senior citizen couple!
If you think about it though, life can be a daring adventure everyday. Life in Christ, that is. Living everyday of your life, doing what it is that God has called you to do.
Whether that may be preaching, teaching Sunday school, cooking hamburgers, working at home, garbage collecting or as in my own line of work, detoxing alcoholics and drug addicts.
I guess the lesson here is, do all that we are called to do as unto the Lord!
I can't think of a more "daring" adventure than that, can you?
***Hope all of you are having a wonderful and blessed Sunday! I know I am!***
