It seems that a day or two (or…80) have passed since I last posted. I’m not sure exactly why that is, but I think it has something to do with my life situation constantly changing. That, combined with not always knowing my audience or what should be broadcast to the Internet and preserved in the annals of history forever, and I’ve been right absent.
But you will (hopefully) be happy to read that I am doing quite well! Amazingly, God has continued to provide good things in my life, from family to new and old friends to perspectives to church(es) to experiences. I feel like I have grown more in the last 6 months than in the 6 years prior. And it’s all a result of God’s good character reflected on my life.
So with that, here’s a parting thought – and something I’m starting to understand better – the joy is in the journey. Staying wholly focused on specific future events and goals (be it the coming weekend, an upcoming promotion, a future trip, or a goal you’ve set for yourself) can really suck the beauty and joy out of this moment. So look forward to things, but also slow the pace a bit and enjoy this next step – there’s joy to be found here.
