Sooner or Later

I have attempted to post this entry for over a month.  It has haunted me for some reason and been a logjam in my writing.  I can’t seem to put it aside and move on to something else.  Yet, each time I go back to fine-tune what I’ve put down I feel like I really missed the point.  I then delete 90% of it and start over.  Time after time the process repeats itself.  The whole thing goes haywire when I give a fresh read and open mind to the quote that is the subject of this post…

“Sooner or later you figure out life is constructed specifically and brilliantly to squeeze a man into association with the Owner of heaven.” - Donald Miller

I’m not real sure exactly how to add to this great statement Miller crafted in his book Through Painted Deserts.  It has so many layers to it and yet it is so wonderfully simple.  So incredibly honest.

Rather than rework what I wrote next in this space, I’m going to leave it up to you.  Maybe you’re going through a particularly rough time.  Maybe you feel incredibly blessed and have more than you possibly deserve.  Or…maybe you’re between squeezes.  I just know one thing, sooner or later…

Run in Peace, Rest in Grace
