Launching A Son - 17

17.     The Long View.
·       Journey takes time, can’t be rushed.
·       No “life hacks” to character.
·       Like eating an elephant, one bite at a time.
·       In giving to others or meeting a need, opportunities present themselves that can never plan or imagine.
·       Sowing and reaping
·       Some crops take long…. long… time before bear fruit.
·       Like sowing and reaping, systems impact life –be aware of systems participate in.
·       Just a steward when die all "things" accumulated will go to another. It is love and relationships that will be legacy that are eternal, have eternal value.
·       Keep a short list with God and others.
·       Wrestle with circumstances, situations, interpretations, and don't carry things to tomorrow that can be reconciled today.
·       "Tomorrow is only in a fool's calendar." (Og Mandino)
·       Short cuts don't usually work and typically end up going around the mountain to learn the lesson trying to avoid.

·       Journey will have "long nights of the soul," don’t be surprised and you are never alone regardless of how it appears!
