On the Horizon

I took a lunch cruise and after lunch I sat at the bow of the boat. At the bow, I lost my breathe. Then, I just breathed the calm of the cool air in. Horizon (2)

I realized it is something that I sometimes take for granted. I can’t imagine what those who lost loved ones in the hurricanes are feeling right now. I can’t imagine what those who lost loved ones in Las Vegas are feeling right now. I can’t imagine what those who lost their homes in California may be feeling right now.  At this time all I can do is breathe, pray, and pray again.

I have no idea what is on the horizon for my family and I. I have no idea what is on the horizon for my friends and my country. Even in the unknown I sat at the bow,  I looked out and I saw that God is still in control. Even when things seem in disarray, God is still in control.

His word says in Isiah 43:2, “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”

Isaiah 43 2

I am believing in God’s word and will continue to look to the horizon.

Please Be Patient

It’s official! I am the parent of a student driver. 🙂

Nervous ParentAs I embark upon this next journey in my daughter’s life, I have been trying to share with her my experiences as a new driver. I remember what it felt like when I first got behind the wheel. I remember vividly the smell of the old cars we practiced in for range. I remember the torn seats and heavy doors that would not close unless you slammed them shut. I remember pressing my foot on the gas to take my first merge onto the expressway.

Please PatientNow that I remember, I wonder if my mother was the nervous parent? Did she break out in a cold sweat or felt nauseated as I put the car in to drive. That is me today! The nervous and nauseated parent while trying to offer encouragement by saying, “good job”.

On behalf of all parents of students drivers everywhere, please be patient when you see the student driver sign. Pretty PLEASE!
