mileage & baggage
It didn't matter that we were driving down a road with oncoming traffic and cars behind ours.
My husband has an awareness with the mileage count on our van
and this was a photographic moment.
Do they pause to document the count and pat the dash board like it was a good faithful friend?
It gets us where we want to be.
The well thought out snacks are no longer in the designated containers and
there is enough wrappers scattered about
to start a healthy sized bonfire.
We have traveled down the roads of disappointment and fear of the unknown.
"The revelation of God is whole and pulls our lives together.
The signposts of God are clear and point out the right road."
Psalm 19:7 MSG
We have also found crazy amounts of joy in building community in a few states.
We have witnessed creation at its finest but there is no measure you can put on time together and growing relationships. They by far have been the beauty along our journey.
The directions of God are plain and easy on the eyes."
Psalm 19:8 MSG
We just can not continue to carry, cram, make room for heaps of unnecessary items
that are not helping us get to that next place of seeing God.
I think a few items of baggage can serve as a reminder
of the pot holes
but their purpose is to document the moment...
not add extra weight.
We long for someone to take notice of the mileage and help us unload some baggage.
We are encouraged when can see the the beauty in the set backs
and keep our eyes up on the destination.
