Up, Up, And...


I do not like roller coasters. Born and raised a New Yorker, The Cyclone at Coney Island is well known to me. Although I've not ridden it ever again since my initial "flight" as a young child, I can well remember what it is like coming to the crest of that climb. The downside would cause me to be breathless with fear. No, I do not do roller coasters.

On the track of life, I'm inching my way up to the crest of the "roller coaster" of my life. In a few weeks, my car will carry me over the crest into the unknown. And only God will hold me in my seat for I will be breathless. Hopefully, more from a positive anticipation rather than fear of the unknown.
I'm the girl who reads the last pages of a book to tell whether or not I want to read it. I read magazines from the back cover to the front. Yet, life does not go in that order. So...I'm holding onto Him as I inch closer to the downside of the coaster. What is over the crest? Oh, how my heart wants to know.
All I know is the downside is the next phase of the journey I call my life. And right now, I'm holding on for dear life.
Because of Him and Unto Him,

  1. I would never on purpose get on a roller coaster but God has had me on plenty during many life changes. Praying for you on this one...North Carolina, looking forward to reading why there??

  2. Diane, I thought I was the only one who read the last pages of a book before I commit!!! I also read articles backwards--wow! I know exactly what you mean when you say "over the crest into the unknown." I hear you; that's a powerful analogy. I have so much faith in you! You got this. Like you said, steer yourself towards the feeling of positive anticipation, rather than fear of the unknown. Take deep breaths throughout your day and remember that fear is just a physical response to discomfort, not a prediction. Don't forget to take deep breaths as you pray. All my love! Powerful post, you're a great communicator--now breathe, love!
