Sights and Sounds Surround Me, Even When Words Elude Me
It’s a new day. I have plans. They seldom happen the way I plan them, but I make them anyway. For me it’s like setting my ship in order before I leave port. Crosswinds, headwinds, tailwinds, or no winds, I’m preparing my ship to catch the winds of another day’s adventure. My course is set.
Setting a course is like making a plan to go somewhere. Mine is not the only ship on this adventure, so I need to be alert. Small deviations in course cause big changes in destination. If I set a course to nowhere, I’ll be sure to get nowhere.
Now, before leaving port this morning, I’m drinking a hot, dark liquid. I brewed it strong today and the brew’s aroma filled my nostrils. Now, its familiar taste crosses my tongue and accelerates my senses. My need for speed sometimes gets me into trouble.
This week is ending and another is beginning. Before I start the next week, I want to remember sights and sounds from last week. Even if the words elude me, the sights and sounds always surround me, even if I can’t see them or hear them.
Here we go. I’m thankful for one more day. I plan to live it as if it were my last. I’m glad our paths crossed on today’s adventure. I pray God shows us His plan and his course for this day. He always does. I’m stubborn sometimes and fool myself into believing I can steer my own ship. Pray for me to accept His corrections to my course.
