Our lives in all aspects are a journey toward a destination, one fitting to our purpose, our special gifts, and our particular
needs. Each day contributes to our journey, carrying us closer
to our destination. However, we often take a circuitous route.
We get stranded or waylaid by our selfish desires, by the
intrusion of our controlling ego. We can reflect on the progress
we've made toward our destination, the steps we've taken that have
unknowingly contributed to our journey.
Our easiest steps have been the ones we took in partnership with GOD. It's in GOD'S mind that our path is well marked.
We are just where we need to be today. The experiences
that we meet are like points on the map of our journey.
Some of them are rest stops. Others resemble high-speed
straight-aways. The journey to our destination is not always
smooth, but the more we let GOD sit in the driver's seat,
the easier will be our ride.
Philysgal I am sorry that you have had such a difficult time and on top of that had to deal with a terrible loss. My son is also in DIV 084. I talked to him on Sat. Jan 9th. He sounded tired and a little depressed, mostly because he was worried that he would not be able to keep up with all the studying and testing. Studying has never been his strong point. He has a great memory if information is told to him. Then I recieved a letter the following Wed. dated 1-10. He sounded still stressed out, but I keep telling myself that now news is good news. I know that they had Hell Week last week from other mom's in their brother division 083. I wish I could give you some good news. I know my son told me he spends a lot of time studying. Stay strong..my thoughts and prayers are with you.
