Throwing Boulders

Sometimes things are set in motion and seem to move beyond our control. I’d like to say STOP! or Slow Down! so I can be sure the direction is right. But God is up above with the 30,000 foot view and He sees the momentum and is okay with it. We don’t see our the small decisions are like a little pebble trown into a pond. The ripples are barely noticeable by the time they reach the shore.
Other, big decisions – who to marry, which job to take, etc. – are like heaving a boulder into the pond. First there’s a huge splash, throwing showers of water into the air. Then rings of motion, slamming against the shore over and over again. Big decisions — big consequences.
Here’s the comfort: that eventually the waves turn into ripples and the ripples into barely discernable undulations, until, finally, the pond is smooth as glass again.

  1. I get it! I was just thinking my pond was as smooth as glass today-happy with job, house, family, etc….then, the tears started to ripple again. Oh when does this end? Maybe never.

    • Thanks! I haven’t blogged in awhile — life got a little crazy there for awhile since my husband and I both started new jobs. I’m back to writing, editing and all that stuff now.
