Who knew my last post Being Alert in the Comfortable, with the tagline, “Even the most noble can slip,” would be illustrated with my own slip a few days later.
After carefully (still not very skillfully, although improving) practicing the ice skating elements taught by our coach, I slipped. But not on the ice-rink. Instead, my feet came out from under me while casually walking to my car, the parking lot icy from the warming and cooling temperatures upon the snow.
So, I type with one hand while adorning a cast on my other arm to stabilize a broken wrist. A green cast with a couple of red stripes. At least I match the upcoming festive season.
What’s fascinating is that I was about to take on a life turn, stop on one road and take another. Now I need to wait as if behind a guard rail while the train passes by.
I can pound the steering wheel in frustration, or cry with fear as the changes I hoped to help support my future roll away.
Or I can wait expectantly, trusting.
But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it. Romans 8:25
My seeking adventures to photograph winter wildlife including owls is now on-hold, too. But I have wanted to learn still photography with indoor lighting…. You may see my new adventure here as soon as next week, God willing! In the meantime, a couple from previous adventures!
