Anyway, everybody is asleep still. I woke up at 7 am and my eyes popped open, and I knew I was awake for good. I took my shower to get that out of the way, and will let the kids sleep in a bit before we load up and head out again. My plans were to make it to WV tonight - but it appears that there is no chance of that. I didn't even get halfway here - and I drove for over 13 hours. I can't do more than that - so we are going to divide the rest of the trip in two parts and make it there by Wednesday.
As I drove those 13 hours yesterday, the highway has offered several spiritual lessons.
- Don't drive 45 in the fast lane. Spiritual maturity does not come overnight. Only growth in the Lord over time can make a person ready for the pace of the "fast lane".
- When in a lane where merging traffic is attempting to blend in, even if keep your eyes straight ahead of you so you can ignore the fact that I desperately need out in rush hour, I am still there. Even if we turn a blind eye to sin, sin is still sin and will have to be dealt with sooner or later.
Take care - I'll see you soon!
