Just my inner thoughts put down on screen.

Cory Writing......

I am sitting here at work playing a game on the computer and my mind is racing. I was thinking about what I am going to do today, which is Easter Sunday. I know that I am going home after work and picking up my wife and going to church. I am then going with the rest of the family over to my parents house for Easter Lunch. I was then planning on going home to veg with my wife, until last night when my wife said she wanted to go see the Easter production that is happening at my church. Here is where Cory's mind goes nuts.

I am sitting here pondering whether being a part of great things ruins you from ever experiencing another great thing that is similar. Let me explain and hopefully you will understand.

When I was growing up in California our church put on this really great Easter production. I was apart of this production for 10 of the 16 years I lived in California. Not only do I have great memories from being involved, but I have great memories about how great the production was. Please don't take this as me bragging because I am well aware of the fact that it was 100% God that made this production great, because God knows we weren't great actors. The great memories from this production lead me to my problem now.

The Church I attend now has started to put on an Easter production. I am good friends with the music pastor that spends a great amount of time seeking God's will for the production. He also spends a great amount of time writing the script. While the production is saving a lot of lives for Christ, I still find myself comparing it to the production at my former Church. They are drastically different, thinking about it the only thing that is the same is the Crucifixion and Resurrection, but even those are portrayed differently.

My dilemma is ..... Am I a better person because I was a part of a great production in California or am I missing out on a blessing by not being able to get over how we did the production in California and enjoy the production here?

So I am letting everyone know right now. I am going to pray that God will help me watch the production later today with no preconceived ideas or notions. I will commit to enjoy this production for what this production has and not compare it. I do not want to live in the past, but enjoy the present and look forward to the future.

I will let you guys know how well I did and I will blog about the great things the production had to offer.

Thank you for letting me ramble. Hope this was thought provoking.

I never realized that you looked at it quite like this. You will do your best and I would say you are a better person just for realizing there are areas in life that you can grow :)
