ViSioN – This keeps reverberating around my brain today. You know how these things happen, right? Or is it my brain that gets these ideas dropped into them – ker plunk – and then it chews on them like a cud in the mouth of a cow?
I guess I have always thought this way – idea -– chew, chew -– more on the subject – chew chew. Digest a while and then, at some point when it’s ready to birth – ker plunk, and out pops my response.
I think this is an odd way to describe vision but that’s mostly the process for me. Sometimes God gives me an idea fully formed – a set of marching orders you could say — but more often than not, it’s the chew chew version. I guess you could say I am a ponder-er and sometimes I gotta ponder my way to see what to do next.
Maybe that comes with a busy life. With wanting to get it “right” – whatever right is. With not wanting to add more complication than I’ve already got. Like this blog. I have been pondering the idea of a blog since I sat in the smoky restaurant in a desert casino while road-trippin’ cross-country to So Cal. That was 2011.
The idea of a blog had a different vision then (and it’s still a good one and may be woven into this tapestry) but in my spirit the other day I felt like the marching orders were about This Epic Journey. Because we are all on one, an Epic Journey, each precious one of us, marching to the vision we have cast in our lives, or the one our parents cast, or the one our pain casts or maybe even the one our God has cast. This Epic Journey will march along with my vision right now and I hope you can come along for the journey with me.
