Are we there yet?
We went to our first Dodgers’ game!!! Yay! We walked, mainly uphill, for about 30 minutes to the ball field. Not too bad, but add . . .
the heat and the sun, a margarita, and recently eating dinner, and you have a struggle. Then add good company, and well, even sweating doesn’t feel so bad.
When we started walking, I didn’t really know how far it was, nor did it matter, the decision was made, we were avoiding the traffic, and going on this adventure. On previous game nights we could see the fireworks from our balcony, so it couldn’t be too far. For the entire walk I didn’t ask, how long is this going to take? How much further, nor are we there yet? The only question I asked was at the beginning.
Do you know where we’re going?
This simple walk was interesting to me . . . you have a dream . . . you set out for it . . . and if you’re like me, I have often asked God, “How long is this going to take?” What I found was . . .
The journey is much better when you’re not looking for the end.
I was able to enjoy the journey there, because I wasn’t concerned with how far, just one foot in front of another, taking time to enjoy my traveling companions, the scenery, and well the journey. Oddly, I don’t remember much about the game, but the walk to and from . . . pretty vivid.
Keep going, trust God, and trust His timing.
