The Gypsy Mama. We get to write for five minutes flat on a word we're given each week. The word for today is VIEW.
I've experienced my share of turbulence while riding in airplanes. That up and down agitated motion causes my stomach to drop. Looking out the window, I can't see much except the color gray. I hope the pilot knows what he's doing. Just as suddenly, the shaking motion stops and we're cruising above the clouds at a higher altitude. I can breathe easier now.
Sometimes life seems like that. I don't always get to see everything clearly. Life becomes turbulent and I don't know what will happen. Changes occur that I hadn't planned. My perspective is blurred and I don't like it. And yet through the turbulence I've learned to trust my Navigator.
I cling to God.
Psalm 63:8: "My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me."
My view isn't clear right now. But one day it will be. In the meantime, it's my faith in God that propels me on.
Blessings and love,
