My mother tells me stories (and I have my own memories of this too) about how when I was little I would tell her that I wasn't a baby from this world, but that I was an alien.  It wasn't just once or twice that I made this remark, but a handful of different times.  This was sometime around age 4.  Silly, cute, sweet little me.  But maybe it wasn't silly, maybe it was an inkling of truth that I didn't yet know.

If I find in myself desires that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable answer is that we were made for another world. -- c.s. lewis
I am a sojourner on this earth... psalm 119:19
But our citizenship is in heaven... philippians 3:20
you are not of the world... john 15:9

So if today you feel out of place, rest in and rejoice that you are!  You too, are an alien.
