Pin It I sit here this evening like so many times before, finding myself thoughtful and reflecting on my life and all of those things which have made it what it is today. There are times I have made mistakes, traveling down roads I wish now I’d never taken.There were also moments that I'd made - what I'd considered - grand contributions into the lives of others.
I thought about Mom today. I imagined myself out alone in the desert. I reminisced on my childhood. I contemplated of the onset of Halloween. I thought of another birthday which will contribute one more year into my time on this carousel-ish world - spinning in an endless pattern.
As I consider these individual parts of my life which contribute to the sum of the whole, I find myself realizing that there is something so much more, something beyond the scope of this life and the trials and successes it affords us in the day to day grind.
It's when I remember that all of the events and situations in this life are temporary I have hope. It is this which helps me to carry on day to day. I do have a song or two I particularly like right now by Steven Curtis Chapman. They are a few reminders that we are all still but travelers along this road known as life, and even with each turn of the seasons we are truly not home yet.
But one day, we will be.
