Life from the Passenger Seat: Timing
Thank you for your sweet comments on my last post. It is such a blessing to have supportive friends and family who can empathize with my struggles. It seems some of the very best people I know are the ones who endure the challenge of waiting.
Yesterday at church someone made a statement about how all our blessings come from our choices. Yes, I agree that our decisions certainly determine our destiny; I would just add to that statement that sometimes those blessings don't come immediately. Faith in God includes faith in his timing. As Elder Holland says in one of my favorite talks, "An High Priest of Good Things to Come,"
“Don’t you quit. You keep walking. You keep trying. There is help and happiness ahead.” Some blessings come soon, some come late, and some don’t come until heaven. But for those who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ,they come. It will be all right in the end. Trust God and believe in good things to come.
When life from the passenger seat looks a bit more like a construction zone, (ROAD CLOSED, DETOUR AHEAD) we can learn to embrace more fully the view along the way. I guess that's what this blog and the stories I tell through photography and scrapbooking are really about--my little way of seeking to recognize and appreciate the view from the passenger seat.
