I AM NOT FAMOUS
but I was recognized a few nights ago. It was bound to happen sooner or later, and tonight it did. I was in Wal-Mart picking up some late night essentials: milk and cold medicine.
A young lady, who I had noticed looking in my direction a few times finally approached me and said, “Hey, aren’t you in the band at lifepoint.” on a side note: I could have taken this opportunity to all the other stuff I do on top of playing guitar in our band…but I digress.
“Yes,” I replied.
So where am I going with this, well I am not sure only that the comment, although nice really didn’t make me feel any different. and thats fine. But it did remind me of the t-shirt Jeff wore a few weeks back that simply said “I am not famous”. And it is true, I’m not, but deep, deep down…we all have a fascination with being recognized…of being someone worthy of notariety…to have a signature thats worth more than the pen it was written with….
But, I know that my life means nothing if all I can say is I made my name a little bit ‘bigger’ than the next guys. I guess what I am trying to say is that daily I am confronted with the words of John the Baptizer, “He must increase, and I must decrease”.
Decrease me until there is nothing left but you…….
