I’M COMING HOME

I just have to find my way!!!

Marinate

Do you ever feel like you missed out on something even though you were apart of that something? I do.

Vacationing for example, when Kristin and I get the chance to go somewhere exciting we plan it out. The anticipation kills me. I usually don’t get much sleep the night before. I think about how exciting it will be when we get there. When we get there I think about how exciting the next day is going to be and imediately start anticipating the next day thinking about how much fun it is going to be. I do this until we go home. We usually have an ok time but how much more would we enjoy it if I would slow down and be in the moment taking full advantage of that moment alone.

God has been speaking to me loud and clear lately on this particular subject. “Brady, slow down and absorb what I have for you. Enjoy it! You are in to big of a hurry to get to the next step!”  I’m sure there is an appropriate proverb for this but being a man, this question puts things into perspective for me. What good is it to put a steak in marinade if you are going to pull it out imediately? Marinate for a while!

  1. Just started reading your blog. I enjoyed it very much. Marinate hit a cord. We recently adopted 3 more kids and I was so busy in the getting ready part, the getting everybody dressed up, the “where are we going to eat” part and the timing part that I forgot to enjoy the day and be thankful for the 3 little blessings that God had just put in our charge. Thanks for the reminder!
