Who Are We?

I’ve been relaxing this Sunday afternoon and watching a little TV. TF and I were watching Bourne Supremacy with Matt Damon. If you have ever watched the movie before you know that Jason Bourne can’t remember who he really is. He ponders his identity and he has that nagging feeling deep down inside to know who he is. He remembers bits and pieces but he just can’t figure out his real name. At the very end of the movie he calls Pam Landy, the head of the department, and she thanks him for helping them with a problem. Wanting to help him she looks in his file and tells him his real name and gives him his birth date. My mind flooded with thoughts about this. The movie ends and you wonder what’s going to happen next.

We all want to know who we are. I have known several people who have been adopted. Somewhere deep down in their soul they want to know who they really are. Who was their father and mother. Why were they given up for adoption? Didn’t their father and mother want them? I think it tugs at their soul for the need to know the answers to these questions. Most of these people were adopted by loving people who became there “new” parents, but who were the ones that physically made them?

It makes me think of our Heavenly Father. We came here from the pre-existence to the earth to live till it is time to be called home again. Do we know who our Heavenly Father is? Do we remember him. If we don’t know him do we have a nagging deep down in our hearts to know who he is? Are we all children of God? For me the answer is yes. I know it without a doubt. I think this is something we all need to know.

I love this; I have a good friend who really needs to read it. On another note, do you mind if I add you to my blogroll?

i don't know if it's so much do we know who our heavenly father is, it's more, do we have faith in our heavenly father. i think if you have faith, you don't have a nagging, because the belief is there. that's how i feel anyway.
and i loved that movie, my son watched it with me, he's only 13 and he loved the way it fell into place. we've also seen the second one, it's very different than the book, but still enjoyable.

Nettie, Yes you may add me to your blogroll. I feel honored. Thanks.

Janie, Yes we need to know our Heavenly Father and then have Faith that he loves us and is there for us when we need him.

I love your letter talking about our Heavenly Father,our God our soul within us. Memories keeps our love ones that have left us alive. So do we our Father and he does answer prayer. Spread the good word of the bible.
Even us that know the lord, that we need guidence everyday. Just imagine the ones that dont know him. Our job is a hard one. To learn ourselves plus talk to others when we dont want to say the wrong thing.

Since it's Sunday... Did YOU clip YOUR coupons from the newspaper? I know I did.

Great Post.

Every once in a while I get this feeling of unconditional love and reassurance. Something that lets me know that I'm okay, and that I can go accomplish what I need to do.


I agree. I think everyone needs to know that their father in heaven does love them for many reasons.

I'm definately a child of God! Without a doubt and yes everyone needs to know!

I also agree, everyone wants to know who they are... speaking of family lines - I've been researching my family ancestry for a few years - that's hard work. Not really for any specific reason other than to know it and pass it down to my children.

To answer your questions from earlier, I've had my dog for about 2-3 weeks now. She's 1 year old. I'm having a hard time trying to rename her. We keep calling her Daisy (the name she came to us with) I suppose after a couple of Roxy if Roxy doens't stick we'll have to go back to Daisy - I'm sure we'll get Roxy on the brain - it's just difficult.

Yes, the rain we've had it from the storm. We're in TN so that's all we get is the rain. However, I just left SC (lived there a few years) and we got hit from last seasons hurricanes. Rough stuff... One good thing I liked about living in CA no tornados and no hurricanes...

Ya'll stay safe :) I appreciate your time and thanks for visiting my rambles...

Puremood, I bet the Roxy name will stick. She looks like a Roxy. I work on my geneology also. It adicting and I love finding out who my ascestors are.
I was born and raised in Houston, so I guess I am used to the weather we have. I think I would rather put up with an occasional hurricane than worry about earthquakes or mudslide. Thanks for your reply.

Yes, Lucy, we are all children of God. I'm so glad to see that you are spreading the word that God, our heavenly Father, is always there for us. If anyone out there reading this blog doesn't know Him, I encourage you to read your Bible and get to know Him.

Lucy,

Great Post.

No doubt in my mind that I am a Child of God.

Two people can do anything, as long as one of them is God.

I enjoyed reading your post. I loved Bourne Supremacy (at least the part that I didn't fall asleep on). You have reminded me that I need to see the entire movie. BTW - Thanks for visiting my blog and for your encouraging comment.

i'm glad im not you red. you know why? because you don't have a freakin life so shut up and get one!

Not that it's my blog, but I feel that the hostility directed at Red by audrey was certainly unnecessary and unwarrented.
