What is our story?

Everyone has a story to tell. Teamwylie (as my wife and I like to call ourselves) is lost in how to tell our story. We seem to focus on the “mud pies” of life where we cannot even imagine a holiday at the sea. The quote below by C. S. Lewis is where my wife picked the address to this blog:

“We are halfhearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.”

So I at least want to admit my reason for borrowing this site from my wife is because I love the idea of understanding infinite joy. More than that, I want to experience infinite joy. So where do we begin? Do we try to see the mud pies in our lives? Or Do we focus on the holiday at the sea? I do not believe I have an answer but again this brings me back to trying to figure out how to be content with the uncertain in my life and to press onward to gaze deeper and stay longer in the presence of the KING, my King and Savior.
