now and then

"What we see depends mainly on what we look for." -- John Lubbock

My junior year of high school I got a brand new Nissan Sentra to match my brand new driver's license. Definitely not the hottest car on the market, but a smooth ride and hot enough for a seventeen year old. Oddly, as soon as I started driving around in my car I noticed so many others on the road. I know I'm pretty cool, but I doubt my choice to drive a Sentra inspired so many others to purchase and display the exact same model. The truth of the matter was, there weren't any more Sentras out on the road, I just began noticing them more.

It's funny how you can see the same things day after day for years without even noticing, but with one small change they take on a whole new light and become so apparent. Since my engagement I've found myself looking at things that I've seen countless times before from a totally new perspective. With just about everything that I encounter, wedding thoughts come to mind. So crazy. Here are a few examples how how I viewed things before and how I see them now:

"You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self... to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness." --Ephesians 4:22-24
