from my notebook

My head is full of thoughts, and I have to write them down.

How Far is East from West

I love the explanation Max Lucado gives for Psalm 103:12 in his book God’s Story, Your Story.”

How far is the east from the west?  Further and further by the moment.  Travel west and you can make laps around the globe and never go east.  Journey east and , if you desire, maintain an easterly course indefinitely.  Not so with the other two directions.  If you go north or south, you’ll eventually reach the North or South Pole and change directions.  But east and west have no turning points.

Maybe I’m just slow.  I am directionally challenged.  But I never really thought about it quite like that.
