I don't know if many of you remember the era of "TGIF" which was a compilation of television shows on ABC in the early 90's which included shows such as Family Matters, Full House, Boy Meets World....etc....as well as a show called Step by Step.
Although this post is not in direct correlation to the show, some of the subtext will have a similar meaning. That show was a basic display two different families joined through marriage who have to start their new lives together and the steps they must take to work through their new family life.
As I sit here today writing to you, I am thinking about the steps each of us take to get to where we ultimately are meant to exist. After enjoying a great cinnamon crunch bagel this morning with Brian at Panera, I was reminded that life throws us curve balls and even sliders sometimes that are meant to build our character, make us work harder. I don't believe God ever meant for us to live life completely comfortable. If so, what would be our reason for seeking him?
Just recently I "tied the knot" with my beautiful bride Megan, we have started the whole process of creating our home. Well we had a minor set back yesterday when our dishwasher stopped working. Well we both worked on it for quite a while and I am ashamed to say that I am not the "All American Handyman Husband".......it still doesn't work......but I loved how we just sat there together and worked on it and were determined to have it running the way it supposed to once again. it was a good reminder that regardless of the steps we have to take to get somewhere, some maybe more difficult than others and some maybe be a simple snap of the fingers.......we are human and we were created with flaws and are meant to take things Step by Step to accomplish the task in front of us.
So keep working at your task at hand.
