Foggy Day

It is that time of year here in Oklahoma. There is a lot of moisture in the air and there is a meeting of warm and cold fronts so we have fog. Humidity is 93%.
It is very dense in some places. Less than 1/4 mile. You can see a little way ahead but not too far.
Fog, as I've written about before, has always been interesting to me. Sort of a metaphor for our life journey. Some times we can see at a distance ahead the path fairly clear. Some times we can only see ONE step ahead only going slowly so that one can watch for stones in the road. Some times it is so thick that you can't even see the next step. And when the way ahead is so thick what we are called to do is to take the step in faith that ahead there is solid ground.
Can we live faithful lives? I think we can. We can trust that the way ahead even though the ground be bumpy--we can take the step ahead.
'On Christ the solid rock I stand all other ground is sinking sand....all other ground is sinking sand."

God abides these short Advent Days.
