I love to make comparisons to trains in my blogs. I have been "gone" for awhile now, no I do not know where I have been or for that matter what I have been doing. I am however, here today. I have read several friends pages. Other people's pages and everyone is searching trying to get "on track". Wondering if they can stay "on track" for the coming holidays. Others are steady as you row...oh...or chug?? tooting right along on their track. A big shout out for them. WTG!

If you know anything about model railroading, you have this wonderful piece of track (I know not it's name) but when your tiny train runs over it, if any cars are going to derail it balances them and gently guides them onto the track. Once the engine clears that piece of rail everything that might have derailed is put right and the model train makes another round

Sometimes working as "the engineer" one has to coach the little engine to the rerailing piece with a gentle finger. Then usually presto! everything follows in perfect form. However, if we have been playing model train for awhile and we experience difficulty we walk away until we feel like taking time to invest in our hobby. we don't beat ourselves up and we know that the train will be there for us to reroute.

If we have been "off track" or "lost track (me)" or "on track" worrying about staying there won't help. Worry only takes today's joy and now listen carefully......most important message in the blog (I think) and it makes us doubters of God's Ability To Take Care of Us and the World. As the holidays approach, let's pray knowing God has the unique piece that balances the train and always Has The Gentle Touch. Pray for peace and God Bless Us. Love in Christ My Saviour, Teresa

    We all need that little finger to gently guide us back on track whether its God's word early in the morning, or a dear friend, Sparkfriend, or even a stranger. You can do it, you know the track ahead, it's familiar enough and you know some of the things that can cause another derailment. We all have them. Wheels on the track, Theresa. That's the only way you're going to get there! (((Hugs))) meet you at the station, come on, you can do it.

    I think too often people forget the meaning of the holidays (Holy days) in the rush to get everything ready. We need to remember that Thanksgiving is about giving thanks to God, and that Christmas is about the birth of our Savior! All the other details are not important.

    We need only to remember that He has us ALL in His hands!!
