Ezekiel 16:4-6

"And as for thy nativity, in the day thou wast born thy navel was not cut, neither wast thou washed in water to supple thee; thou wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all.
None eye pitied thee, to do any of these unto thee, to have compassion upon thee; but thou wast cast out in the open field, to the lothing of thy person, in the day that thou wast born.
And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live."
Ezekiel 16:4-6

This is pretty stark, but I think really true in a symbolic sense... of what we have been without God.  And what it really is that he has done and does do for us.  We're lost without him.  Hopeless.  But he saves us, and washes us, and gives us hope and a chance at a future.  With him, we have a chance to thrive, we learn to love, we survive.  Sometimes the future is so bright that we start forgetting where we came from, and what he has done for us.  ... Today, let's try not to forget.  Let's remember what he has done for us... what he continues to do for us, every day.  Pulls us out of hopelessness and gives us a chance at life.
