There are some times when life is so vividly good, bad, or otherwise that you have to question: is this real? The answer is twofold I think. Yes, it's real. You're living life in the truest sense. No, it's not real. You feel this way because you're getting a glimpse of eternity. The first part of Ecclesiastes 3:11 says "He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in man's heart..." We were made for real life.
