Journey’s Joys

This summer I had the opportunity to take a month off.  I traveled north by car.  This gave me the opportunity to pack some items for delivery to Sinsinawa and plan for several events and visits. 

For the drive, I had intended to listen to lectures on spirituality and scripture but the changing scenery really captured my heart.  I drove in silence except with the GPS voice reminded me of my next route change or a car on the side of the road or even that police were spotted ahead.

Driving through Kentucky there was a sign that caught my attention.  You know the digital signs set up to given instructions of a lane closure or other related notices.  What was recorded made me laugh (and to be cautious of other drivers):  “This Ain’t A Nascar Raceway!”

I wanted to move that sign to Florida and plant it many places on I-95.

The sign also made me think of the ways we sometimes go through life events at racing speeds and don’t take time to savor the experience unfolding like Kentucky scenery.

What is happening in your life right now that slowing down could help?  A decision? A hope? A relationship?
