Finding our way to The Way one situation at a time. I don't know how great it will be, but I expect it will be interesting, and I look forward to it going on past all reason because wonder is just that way. Are you coming or not?
We can't hurry anything up,
or slow anything down.
It is a though we are all in this river
that flows at its own rate
no matter what we do,
and we forget that,
and think we can hurry things up
and slow things down,
and avoid things altogether.
Can't do it.
We are corks on the water,
moving at the speed
of what's coming
and what's going--
and it never gets faster or slower
Here it comes,
there it goes.
Life is like that.
Requiring us to let come what’s coming,
and let go what’s going.
There is a country song in there somewhere.
I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing.
I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
