I was made to be wide-eyed all the days of my life.

Introduction to Life 101


My name is Laura Clawson. I'm one of those people who likes to try to figure things out. Whether its sketching it up or just thinking it over and over and over and then jumbling my words all up when I try it get it out, I like to figure things out. I want to figure out life, so I can do it the right way. You know, not mess it up, not waste it, not let a single moment of time, tick tock by with out me knowing.

Here is the thing:
The more I figure out life, the more I am coming to find that its not what I expected it to be.
Its much more. Much, much more.

And its different. Its about different things, that is.

I used to think that Life, or the 'good version' of life was for the rich, the lucky and/or the beautiful.
Reality check:
its not.
Life is for me.
Because of Jesus and what he does and did and will do I get Life, 
The good version. The full version. The extended version, even.  Its a lot different from what I thought it was.


Feel free to quote me on this offical statement:
