Finally was able to get in touch with my childhood days again today. I am quite glad, too. My mom, Steven (my brother), and I went to see Winnie the Pooh at the movie theatre today. A very good film if I do say so myself. Some might disagree with me and that’s okay! For me it was great to relive my childhood and go back to a time when things were less hectic and more simplistic.
I found myself tearing up at very beginning, when the book opens and the opening song. Everyone knows that song:
Deep in the hundred acre wood
Where Christopher Robin plays
You’ll find the enchanted neighborhood
Of Christopher’s childhood days …
Yes, that song! 😀 I just swell up with tears and enjoy that song. It’s very easy to get that song stuck in your head and that “chubby cubby all stuffed with fluff” just gets you right there, or at least he does me — perhaps it’s because I feel I am just like him! 😉
While watching the movie, I saw myself in many of the situations and also remembered that my life used to be this carefree and I didn’t have to worry about anything as much as I do now. Looking at it now, about oh let’s say 4 1/2 hours after viewing the movie, I also realize that this is how God wants us to be.
God wants us to not worry and give all our cares and troubles to Him for God to worry about and solve. We don’t need to worry because God always finds a way to work things out for the benefit of us! We are always welcome to run to God and be a child again.
As Romans 8:38-39 says:
I am convinced that nothing can’t separate us from His love. Death can’t, and life can’t, the angels can’t, and the demons can’t. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, and even the powers of hell can’t keep God’s love away. Whether we are high above the sky or in the deepest ocean, nothing in all creation will ever separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
All we have to do is believe and we will be with Jesus and God forever! God is always present and ready to love us and welcome us home; we can be a child again — God’s child!
