The Songs I Sing

 

I sing little songs to myself while I’m waiting.

This fact was made known to me quite recently, and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since.

I teach classes for a non-profit organization. As part of my job, I demonstrate procedures before I have the class follow along with me.

Several months ago, while I was waiting for the computer to process the steps I had just entered, I sang to myself. The class proceeded to sing the little tune with me before they erupted with laughter. Shocked, dismayed, and wholly confused, I asked what had struck the class with amusement. They reported with glee:

“You always sing that song while you wait.”

Mission Part 2 – Closing the Gap

Traffic-650x500

Being a Christian, a disciple, is simply following Christ.

If you have ever taken a road trip involving multiple vehicles, you know what it means to follow.  On the long straight-aways of open highway, in broad daylight, you can feel a little freer to slow down, to go at your own pace.  But, it only takes a few curves, the setting of the sun, or hitting rush hour traffic for everybody to quickly close the gap on the leader.  There is typically panic in the car until we are once again riding the bumper of the lead vehicle.

Following requires proximity.
