Ryan’s Miracle Watch 7/22/18

SLOW   adjective:   not moving quickly; taking a comparatively long time

Was in the mountains this weekend and had a slow internet connection, so I decided not to post. Compared to the pace of the Bay Area, things in the mountains move at their own pace; slowly. For lunch one day, I went to the local store and ordered a sandwich. The lady who’s been working there for as long as I can remember, took half an hour to make it. She has two speeds; slow and reverse. Because of this, I always pledge never to return there again because it takes too long, but because I’m a senior citizen I forget my pledge and go back again and again and again.  I’m not kidding…and it’s not funny! On a more positive note, the sandwiches are good…but not worth waiting half an hour for. A project I’ve got someone working on, which was supposed to have taken three months to complete, is coming up on a year; and it’s still not finished; not to mention it’s costing three times as much as projected. Will someone please shoot me now? The project is looking really nice, though. One night, I ordered pizza from one of the local joints. I was the only one there, and it took 45 minutes to make. One lousy (actually, it was really good) pizza. DOH! CalTrans is working on southbound HWY 5 in Mt. Shasta, and there are no on-ramps open to get on southbound. It added an extra hour to my drive home today. That said, the road is going to be really nice when it’s done.

Do you notice a trend here? Despite everything moving at a snails pace, there was/is a silver lining to everything. God’s still trying to teach me patience. He wants me to slow down and smell the coffee. Allow things to unfold in their own time. Enjoy the process and watch what beautiful things come from it…

Philippians 1:6   For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.

Ecclesiastes 3:11   He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

In God’s time, Ryan will be healed. The process seems to be taking a really long time, but in the context of eternity, it’s not taking long at all. So, I’ll try to slow down, be patient and wait/watch for the beautiful outcome that is yet to come…
