Traffic

This morning on my way to work I got stuck in traffic. It took me 4 minutes to get to the highway, which is good. It took me 30 minutes to go the next 2-ish miles on the highway. I could have walked faster. I have walked that distance faster. Still, who wants to be in a big hurry to get into work? So instead of getting a bad case of road rage, I looked around. I saw a guy reading the newspaper, there was a girl in a mini-van rocking out to some rap music, and lots of people were on their cell phones. If nothing else being stuck in traffic gives you a good opportunity to think. The Amish make a good point when they say that us "englishers" take life too quickly.

The past few days Levi and I have been discussing a lot of things for our future. Its scary, but a "first day of school" scary, not like a "monster's chasing me" scary. I am so optimistic about us. Its strange to me that I am not having more doubts, usually I am more insecure about making the right decision when its something big. I have confidence in this. I keep praying that if this isn't what God wants that he will take away my desire for him, but so far it has just been intensified. I am so genuinely happy and content right now.
