      She was waiting for her mom there in the drugstore, standing near the
      cash register with her eyes glued to the candy shelves. She was maybe 5
      or 6. For that little girl, paradise was just a few feet and a few
      dimes away.

      Different times, different things.  When we are little we want our
      bottle. Grade school we want to only be with our friends. Teenagers
      want romance, and ... a car! Then we want a job, a home, a family. And
      a fulfilling life. Happiness. Security in a changing world.
      Retirement investments.  Good health.

      Throughout all our ages and stages we want a LOT of different things.
      But God always wants the same thing.  Us.

      In the Bible, God tells us that He created us for fellowship with Him.
      He relentlessly pursues. We are restless in our spirits until we are in
      that personal relationship with Him.  

      He won�t give up, and He won�t give in.  He will continue to lovingly
      gaze upon you as if you, yourself, are those candy shelves.

      That is good news.
