Defined by Opportunities


I love this clip from The Curious Case of Benjamin Button as it is such a great glimpse of the connectedness of life. The movie is a great work of art and the message spread throughout the film is so profound; “Our lives are defined by opportunities, even the ones we miss.” I learned later that this quote was by F. Scott Fitzgerald, which makes me love it even more.

Every step in life means something and leads us to our next step. Sometimes they are painful, but in the end beautiful as they makes our lives…uniquely ours. I must also mention another great quote from the Bible; “all things work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purposes.” Nothing in life goes unnoticed by Him as he lovingly organizes and lines up all those experiences and “steps” we take. This is, to me, the greatest comfort.
