I've felt that I've come through one of those times where I have worked it out. I was on my way home earlier and I am feeling that my upcoming birthday is going to be another mark in the life of change. Let me explain...When I was 18-19 years old, the change in my life was going into adulthood. When I was 28-29, I changed the direction in my life by dumping all of the relationships and garbage of the previous 10 years (well not all of my friendships, just the harmful ones). That also happened to correspond to my time in Antarctica, Which, by the way 10 years ago today, I landed at McMurdo Station on Ross Island to start my year at the South Pole. Very therapeutic. Now, as I look back over the last 10 years, I now have a better handle on the Wesley theology term of sanctifying grace, as I have seen some miraculous changes and some very subtle changes in my life. It would take to long to type all of it here, but suffice it to say that I am at more peace with my life now than I have ever been. It just took the last 20 years to appreciate the rough spots. Most of which, I caused from making bad decisions. So as far as I am concerned, I feel that I can rewrite the last part of that song by saying that while I am still working it out, I haven't missed the point and it is far from over.
And if you don't know what im talking about,
It's probably better cause im working out,
Don't wanna spend my lifetime figurin out,
That i coulda just said one prayer
And if you know what i'm talking about,
Then together were both working it out,
Don't wanna spend my lifetime figuring out
I missed the point now it's over
Now it is time to do dishes and get my lunch ready for work. Mids can be such a drag sometimes...
And by the way TFK rulz!!!!
