Ever feel like you life is a train wreck?
Are you at a loss as to how to get your train up and running and back on the track?
Be prepared to work hard.
The first step is to dig yourself out.
Pickup the debris and clear the rubble out of the way.
Salvage what you can by making repairs where needed.
Check the mechanics of your train.
Work on the basics, heal the wounds from the inside out.
If you were derailed, examine the tracks. Make necessary reinforcements.
If the train and the track are not the root of your collision, perhaps it is the environment through which your train travels.
Maybe it’s time to reroute.
Take the time and the means to get yourself running and back on the tracks.
Living in the Gap

My youngest son called me. Enthusiasm spilled from his voice through the phone and into my heart. I became as excited as him. So much can be revealed through the tone of voice and choice of words. I could feel relief being lifted from his shoulders. I heard the gratitude for opportunity, and the expectation of better things. I felt appreciative he called to share the good news in his life. It’s a good feeling to know things are going well in the lives of my children. It is no greater joy than to share in their success and happiness. A bit later he came by to talk about his plans. His face glowed. He seemed to walk on air. His smile never faltered. My heart overflows with love, confidence, and excitement for him. I hope the new chapter in his life will be even greater than the dreams he has of it.
