Something More

The Little Mermaid Wallpaper - the-little-mermaid wallpaper

For those of you who know me you knew it was only a matter of time until I posted something that had to do with Disney. This song is from the Disney movie, The Little Mermaid, it is about Ariel wanting MORE. She talks about wanting more, and how some think there's something wrong with her for wanting more. As you read the lyrics I want you to think, "What does this have to do with me and why is he posting this?"

Maybe He's Right
Maybe There Is Something The Matter with me With Me
I Just Don't See How A World That Makes Such Wonderful Things
Could Be Bad

Look at this stuff
Isn't it neat?
Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?
Wouldn't you think I'm the girl
The girl who has everything?

Look at this trove
Treasures untold
How many wonders can one cavern hold?
Looking around here you'd think
Sure, she's got everything

I've got gadgets and gizmo's a-plenty
I've got woozits and whatzits galore
[You want thingamabobs? I've got 20!]

But who cares?
No big deal
I want more

And ready to know what the people know
Ask 'em my questions and get some answers
What's a fire and why does it
[What's the word?] burn
When's it my turn?
Wouldn't I love
Love to explore the shore up above?

Out of the sea
Wish I could be
Part of that world

What would I give to live where you are
What would I pay to stay here beside you
What would I do to see you, smiling at me
Where would we walk
Where would we run
If we could stay all day in the sun
Just you and me
And I could be..
Part of your
I don't know when
I don't know how
But I know something's starting right now
Watch and you'll see
Someday I'll be
Part of your

Alright! What do you think? She sings about all the THINGS she has but she wants more. There are many that would connect that to selfishness...get it sel-fish-ness...she's a right. Alright anyway, I hear it and I think how she wants something of greater substance in her life. The THINGS don't satisfy her. She wants something more something greater. Here's the question of the hour... "Do we?" 
Do we want something more or are we simply content with our material possessions.

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and thieves break through and steal;
 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal.
 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
(3 Nephi 13:19-21)

I can promise you that as we look past our materials and we "want more" that we can some day be "part of that world". Not part of the human world but part of the world where our Father in Heaven lives and it can be us and Him and we can walk, run and ask all the questions we want. 

So...are you willing to WANT MORE?

  1. I want something more then the materal things in life. And thanks to the Elders that have helped us find our way back to church and the ones who have pushed us to do what we know is right we are going to the Temple. Thank you Elder Davis and all the elders that have helped us.
