It's amazing how quickly a year can fly by!
...Now that the cliche' is out of the way, I can validate the truth of it. Why, that's no cliche', it's just the truth. I've been watching this year sail through the air and past me like a humming bird on caffeine, and it's more than a little dizzying. About a month has gone by since my last post, and I've not been able to relax much since then.
"Man, what was that? Oh, it was 2004..."
Obviously, that's just not right. Things should not be that way. It's definitely not what God had in mind for us. So I'm doing some reevaluating of things. My schedule. My priorities. My focus.
I'm in Oklahoma, right now with my family, visiting Leona's Mom and Dad. Yesterday morning, I went for a walk that was really an intense quiet time with God. Many questions I asked simply didn't seem to have an answer from Him, but I knew God was with me and wanted my attention. A few minutes later, I was asked by Leona's Dad if I wanted to go for a ride on the "four wheeler."
Cold wind in my face and using muscles I haven't used in a while, I was soon flying along a bumpy pass and seeing things in a fresh, new way. It wasn't long at all before my mood completely shifted, God seemed more in touch than ever, and ideas and vision started pouring into my weary noggin.
It's amazing how quickly your mental & spiritual cobwebs can fly by when you're riding a four wheeler through the scenic views of a mountain trail! ...It's not much of a quotable cliche', but it is the truth.
"Man, what was that? Oh, it was me...getting back on track."
More later. ...Maybe.
