Before you begin to feel discouraged about your own detour, let me just add that we are slow learners. Our detour onto the sailboat was more than five years ago. Along the way, we've each had our roller coaster moments. I think my dear man would agree we've each experienced the full spectrum of emotions. Gratefully, one of us is usually on the upside when the other is sliding down. We're definitely riding the crazy learning curve. Welcome aboard!
Fretting might be the easiest "go to" activity in a waiting room. However, God says don't fret - don't worry. Then He offers all of these other activities to take the place of worrying about circumstances we can't control anyway.
