We have such big plans, year after year, and day after day, that it sometimes we don’t realize when God is calling us to something greater. There are times when we are Paul and have to be knocked down from our horse. Many times we need a huge wake-up call to get us focus on the right thing.
How quickly can the clouds of grief and sadness muddy our thoughts and feelings. We tend to only focus on the here and now, but tend to forget everything of the past. It is not until the dust settles that we can remember the things that didn’t come to mind at first. The smiles that the person put on our lips, and the lessons they taught us in life.
