Driving home yesterday, a squirrel ran out in front of me. He was almost to the other side of the street when he realized my car was coming. He scurried around and ran back the other way. I thought, little squirrel- you were almost there! Why did you turn around?
It was farther to go backward than to just hurry on up to the way he was planning to go.
How often do we do that? We’re almost "there" and we see the big enemy a comin' or something bad happens, we freak out or just get into fear, and then we turn back the other way...
...when we were almost to the other side. Almost there!
Of course I could see the big picture as I watched the little squirrel from higher up and could see his course, and that he could have made it if he tried.
Something to think about today, thanks to a squirrel.
