Sermons from Barney Fife: The Value of Being Me

The Virtual Pew
Sermons From Barney Fife

You know Barney teaches today a valuable lesson, a lesson that today, on my birthday I can relate to. It is important at times to reflect on our life. I have done that over the years, I have thought of my life both from the BC (Before I had a relationship with Jesus) and AD (After I quit being so dumb and started having a relationship with Jesus.) I have learned a lot of things in life, I have learned in fact, maybe more so from mistakes than I have successes. I look back and I have come to the conclusion; while I have made many mistakes, I am generally pleased with the direction my life has taken and one thing I know for certain, I will know when my time comes to an end, that I have done my best, and I went after my dreams. I haven’t had much in life in regards to material things, well at least not much according to some, but man have I found some happiness that I never expected despite the difficulties that have attempted to tear me down.

One of the lessons I have learned in life, is we can focus on the bad, or we can focus on the good. I have a post I will make in the future of Don Knots talking about how he loved the character. Many would hate the life time association that went with playing the part of Barney Fife. Truth is though, as Shakespeare once said, “life is more than just an act.” We have to realize that, we can look at the parts we have played, the life we have led, and while that is often times different than who we really are, we should be grateful for the opportunities and privileges we have had.
I know, who many see me as, is not always who I am. My wife knows that, she sees me in my honest and real way more than most ever will. I make an attempt to make her laugh every day and I always succeed. Can we learn from Barney, can we learn to look at ourselves in a different way? Can we separate the good from the bad? Can we be fulfilled and satisfied? I have found the answer for me, can you?
