Moving on the train of life
Father and son..starting their journey..(Clearwater, Florida)
This was sent to me today...and I wanted to share it with you...I think you'll agree it is very profound...
As we grow and mature...so many people are, or have been instrumental in the events of our lives, some good, some bad..but all are contributing to the person we become or are becoming.
We are the conductor's of our train, we can decide who should take this ride with us. (that is after our parents
gave us the ticket to ride..).
"To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven". Ecclesiates 3:1
we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will always travel on our side. However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone.
As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant i.e. our siblings, friends, children,
and even the love of our life.
Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum. Others will go so unnoticed that we don't realize they vacated
This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and
farewells. Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers requiring that we give the best of ourselves.
The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. So, we must live in the best way, love, forgive, and offer the best of who
It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat
empty we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.
I wish you a joyful journey on the train of life. Reap success and give lots of love. More importantly, thank God for the journey.
Lastly, I thank you for being one of the passengers on my train .
