Life Doesn’t Come with a Cut and Paste Button

Twenty years ago, I wanted a cut and paste button on my living history. If only such a thing existed. I would’ve recreated my childhood, deleted certain details, and added events that my children could proudly tell to their friends. My rewritten version would exclude the times I fled for my life, and include a mother I could trust, and the knowledge of her love.

Time has passed and I’m older now, and I’m thrilled with the power of choice. I can have grey hair if I want, since I don’t, I color it brown. I smooth out fine lines on my face with special creams, and exercise to keep my middle age bloom from blossoming into something resembling a beach ball under my shirt. I can select which speaking invitations to accept, or work to do, or friends to keep, or what I’ll eat for breakfast…

  1. The photo is lovely.

    No, life doesn’t come with a cut/paste button, but there is a “Delete” according to Rev. 7:14-17
    These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. . . . For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of water: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.”

    Life also comes with an “option” button and you, Pamela, have chosen the brighter path.
