Metaphorically Speaking…

Today April and I took the plunge and bought our plane tickets to Europe. Non-refundable tickets. Expensive ones. We are committed to this now. No turning back, and there are plenty of reasons to be scared. One thousand, eight hundred nineteen-and-a-half reasons, to be exact. (Thank you Uncle Sam for a nice tax refund this year.) What if something goes wrong? What if we commit to this thing and something falls through in a month or two? What if we have a huge terrible fight and we regret ever doing this? (Granted, that won’t happen. That’s why this is a metaphor.)

But April is a dear friend and I trust her. Most importantly, I trust the Lord. Why would we never take a risk when the rewards could be so great?

God is good. =)
