There’s a Shaking Going On – Can You Stand
I was sipping my coffee the other remembering a year prior, I was making my daily 2 hour train commute. Although, relaxing in the morning, the trip home in the afternoon. , especially on Fridays sometimes turned into a 4 -6 hour commute.
The platform would be littered with people trying to make it home for the week-end. I would pile myself into the already overstuffed train car; not finding any seats, I would maneuver through people trying to find a little space to breathe. I would be jostled, pushed, and sometimes stepped on, as the train would lurch from side to side. I would hold on for dear life just to keep from being thrown to the floor. My only consolation, was knowing that soon I would be home.
Yet again, I find myself being jostled, pushed, and stepped on, by the train of life. I still find that my sole consolation, is knowing that soon I will reach my destination. Friends, there is a shaking going on. My question to you – Are you willing to Stand and Hold on until you get to your destination?
