“Sanctify yourselves: for to morrow the LORD will do wonders among you.” (Joshua 3:5 KJV)
Ever wonder if a storm will hit your destination before, during or after your arrival?
Ever wonder, if your expectations will be disappointed way before they ever have a chance to be met or not?
Two days ago, we were mostly packed and ready to go on a long awaited trip with a set itinerary, planned around a reunion, a celebration and a retreat from every day life.
We set aside clothes, food, books and other travel necessities. We put things in designated bins, with labels for ease of identification for the coming days of “living” on the Intuition.
News of a hurricane heading towards Haiti, Cuba, the Bahamas and the southeastern coastline halted our plans.
Ever wonder how a serene peace can surround you, when you could be a wreck?
Ever wonder how friends and family have just the right ideas or words of comfort?
We soon realized we couldn’t go straight to our planned route. The reunion was cancelled. The celebration of our 30th anniversary will happen, wherever we end up. And we still have the time and means set aside to continue on our adventure.
Yesterday, we finished packing and shared pizza with some of our family. One of my favorite memories of this adventure so far, will be watching everyone climb around on the boat in front of our house.
Some doing their homework, some sipping coffee and all just enjoying the sanctuary of the simpler life. Feeling safe and serene on an October evening in the suburbs.
Ever wonder how you can be in a safe place, while others face death and devastation?
Ever wonder how you can pray for their well being, while you enjoy your own?
Ever wonder how all these wonders, great and small, good and difficult fit into the grander scheme of love?
