Thoughts - November 18, 2016

“Never be so focused on what you're looking for that you overlook the thing you actually find.”
― Ann Patchett, State of Wonder.
This is a lesson I have learned over and over again. You? One example is when I'm out hiking to a certain 'place' (e.g. up to the top of a mountain or to a special spot) and I run out of energy. Finding myself on a rock, by a creek, deep in the woods, resting - I realize I have found what I needed. Or sometimes I'm reading three different books, none of them quite what I want at the moment...when a sentence will pop out at me, an idea I needed or an encouragement seeked, or simply a well-crafted thought. Prayer, or answer to prayer, can be like that, too. Or men. Or friends. Or work. Or... so many things! - Beth Almond Ford
