Fame, Fortune, and Fun

Today, Saturday, we went to a concert at Six Flags and this was the view:

I liked it, I did, but it seemed so...empty.

As I sat thinking about it while observing my surroundings, these three words came to mind: fame, fortune, and fun. Band/celebrities=fame, oil derrick=fortune, roller coasters=fun. Nothing here is inherently wrong, but it makes for a worthless life if this is one's complete goal and purpose. And for many of my peers, finding fame, fortune, and fun is everything.

...I don't want this to be my life.

I'm missing the simplicity of Guatemala, of loving God and His people, without all the American Bubble distractions.
