Something More

Country star Sara Evans sings:

I keep looking, I keep looking forSara Evans
I keep looking for something more
I always wonder what’s on the other side
Of the number two door
I keep looking
Looking for something more

So true.

In Walter Isaacson’s fascinating biography of Steve Jobs, he recounts the purchase of the one-billionth purchase from the iTunes store. It was made by a sixteen year old from West Bloomfield, Michigan. For his purchase of Coldplay’s “Speed of Sound” he received a personal phone call from Jobs, ten iPods, an iMac, and a $10,000 music gift certificate.

And all I could think is, “I never win anything like that.”

I keep looking, I keep looking for
I keep looking for something more

The reality is I had a great childhood, I have a wonderful wife, amazing kids, and a good job. I have a hope for life granted by a God whose love has been proven to me and a place to rest my fears, anxieties, and guilt.

Borrowing once again from Ms. Evans:

I’ve found all I’ve waited for
And I could not ask for more
