We are home after a very long drive from Nashville yesterday.
Something about being locked up in a small car for hours with the people you love will test your patience.
But here are a few observations that I took away from yesterday.
Everyone took care of each other. Driving on strange roads afforded us different challenges. While there was some yelling, "Watch out!" Everyone took care of everyone else.
Teamwork made a difference as we drove and slept in shifts. This didn't make the drive any shorter but a little easier.
Questions were valuable. While using the Wayz app, we would ask, "Are we on the right road?" and "Are there any cops ahead?"
Everyone cared about the other person "Are you hungry? Do you need to go to the bathroom? Did you get some sleep?"
After 12 hours of this, we arrived home. Tired and happy it was over. The reward of arriving at your destination feels great.
When you look at your life, ask yourself a few of questions.
Where am I going, and is that destination worth it?
Am I getting there the best way possible?
Pray: Dear Jesus, help me have the courage to ask those questions and Your help to answer them. In Jesus' Name, I pray - AMEN.
