A Handle on Life?

Sometimes I feel I am a bit like this:
Helpless, blind, pacifier in the mouth
(read all the things that make me feel good and lull me into lethargy)

but the clothes are too big,

a kid masquerading as an adult.

This is for any who feel inadequate.
You never feel as though you have arrived.
You never feel as though you have a handle on everything.

You just do the best you can:

And remember Rule #6
that is:
Never take yourself too seriously.
And life CAN feel like this:
Its enormously comforting to know that there is Someone who does know all the answers
and carries us if we want Him to:
