Cinderella to Pumpkin

I was listening to political commentators today discussing how hard it is for presidential hopefuls to give up their campaigns even when certain defeat is staring them in the face. To face the reality that one may no longer be as relevant, important, needed or recognized as they once were is not an easy pill for people of a certain stripe to swallow. From politicians leaving office, movie stars losing their screen luster to a captain of the football team exiting his senior year, the reality of the road ahead becomes a disappointing if not frightful prospect–like going from being Cinderella to being a pumpkin.

About StriderMTB

Hi, I'm Matt. "Strider" from Lord of the Rings is my favorite literary character of all time and for various reasons I write under the pseudonym "StriderMTB. As my blog suggests I seek to live out both the excitement and tension of a Christian walk with Christ in the 3rd world context of Asia. I am unmarried yet blessed to oversee an orphanage of amazing children in South-East Asia. I hate lima beans and love to pour milk over my ice-cream. I try to stay active in both reading and writing and this blog is a smattering of my many thoughts. I see the Kingdom of God as Jesus preached it and lived to be the only hope for a broken world and an even more broken and apathetic church.
