the final score

I went to my oldest son's high school soccer (futbol) game last night. It always feels good deep down as a parent when you see your boys play their positions on the pitch, talking to each other, making good passes, scoring, and ultimately shutting out the game with a win!
This comes with much practice, hard work, fellowship and even with several losses under their belt.

Lately, I have had several different people tell me that they are in transitional places in their lives and it is driving them crazy to know what the outcome is going to be so that they can just go ahead and "make plans". Although I somewhat know what they mean by that, I think sometimes we forget that "getting there" is what makes us who we are! Kind of like my son's soccer team I was talking about earlier.

Life is short. Getting to "the final score" is the best part! Enjoy it!



  1. I think getting there is half the fun. Although when in transition it is difficult to feel that way!

  2. Very true - great analogy. Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to reading more.

    Love to you
