Gumption & the Grace of God

Things are going really well for me lately. I have a lilt in my voice and a lift to my step. I’d say it’s about time!

Seems to me that this is the light at the end of the tunnel we all aspire to. (It could just be a crack in the tunnel wall that’s letting the sun through, but I’ll take it.) However it came, why ever it’s here, I’m grateful for the reprise from life’s ongoing struggle. That doesn’t mean everything’s all peachy. No, a lot of the day-to-day life crap is still on my heels.

The difference is that I’ve been working hard to make a few things happen. Praying that God would let them happen. And one day, a phone call, a letter, a head shake during a meeting and you realize, “Whoop, there it is!”

More later.
