Need To Be Hatched!
“It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.” -C.S. Lewis Had lunch with one of my favorite 'buds' yesterday. She gave me this beautiful gift of eggs! She has a friend that has a flock of girls and gets them regularly from her...and decided to share her eggs with me. As far as eggs go...they were beautiful! The color was pristine and the shape perfect. Which got me thinking about eggs. We have all heard many coloquilisms...quotes....sayings...about eggs... ...don't put all your eggs in one basket. ...which came first the chicken or the egg? ...someone is a bad egg. Obviously, the comparison of humans to eggs is quite broad. Found the above quote by C.S. Lewis and just loved the symbolism of hatching or going bad. Quite a wonderful way to look at ourselves. So let's tip our glasses to eggs! We are not all nuts that are hard to crack....we are just eggs that need to be hatched!
