You ever have those moments when you look back at something you did or said and question if it was right? Not because it was maniacally wrong, but because you were naive to its content, or being humbled by another’s actions. I have. Let me explain. Now in my previous blog I ranted about some of the things that went awry on my trip here to Austin. I have, by the way, changed hotels. But I want to let you know that I was using license to make drama of my experience. At no time did I actually get frustrated at any of the situations. Quite to the contrary, I even tipped the shuttle driver $10 for the multiple trips to my car to find my silly teeth. You see while all the things that happened might appear to be an inconvenience, one must ask, “so what?” So what does it mean that your flight is delayed. Who sets the deadlines we are so desperately chasing. Heart surgery is urgent, getting to Austin to attend a conference that doesn’t start until the next day is not. You see it is about choices. I can choose to schedule my time so tightly that it becomes eminent that I will at some point miss an appointment. I can also choose my reaction when it happens. Who am I to then destroy some one else’s day because of a standard I have set. That being said I must also have a base on which my choices stem from. So with our cell phones, our ipods, our gadgets and our diner, we need to become realistic with the priorities in our lives and cross check those with what God desires for our future. My next entry will explore this standard, or base, from which we believe our lives should arise.
