Yes, I had another one of those nights when, what should have been a simple trip became quite the adventure! Leaving a half hour early for a picnic with the Tiffin Serra Club, I still managed to arrive five minutes late. It seemed there were even detours on the detours! I didn’t do too badly for a person who is not gifted with a good sense of direction.
I worked hard to reach my destination last night despite the many road closures I encountered. I couldn’t help reflecting how easily I sometimes give up when I encounter what seems like a closed road in my spiritual life. Perhaps I need to be a little more creative in finding different ways to pray or try looking at situations from a different perspective. I wouldn’t think of just sitting on a road staring at the road closed sign; yet, sometimes I sit and do nothing when I encounter a block in my spiritual life. I know the ultimate destination I have – how hard am I willing to work to get there?
Even coming home last night provided some good laughs. After deciding to take a route I was sure of even though it was a little out of the way — you guessed it, another road closure! God has a great sense of humor!
