The blessing in that was I had a great vantage point to watch dad drive....left arm on the window and right hand at twelve o'clock on the wheel. It drove me nuts to see him always moving that right hand slowly back and forth as we drove along, even on a straight road. So I finally spoke up one day to ask why he couldn't just hold the wheel straight. He explained that the art of driving a car is that you're always correcting...at any given time you're heading slightly to the right or to the left, and that the trick was to be aware of that and be in the process of correction.
Now that has become a bit of a metaphor for my life. You know, Jesus said that the road to life is a narrow road...and I think He might mean that as we walk through this life, we're on a journey, in a process. The trick is to keep moving, and to be always correcting...seeking to keep our eyes and our life focused on Jesus.
So what's my point? As usual, I'm not sure! But I think to say that life is a process. That we need to be always correcting our path. That we need to be staying out of the ruts. That the road to life is exactly that...it's a road. Ya, that's probably it.
Oh yeah, and that sisters are bossy...
