It turned out to be a 14 hour trip instead of a 10 hour drive home, but the side-trip was worth it. Crater Lake was magnificent! What do we miss out on when we aren’t willing to lose a little sleep, step off the beaten path, or go the extra mile?
Perhaps, at times, living a Spirit led life is being willing to take side-trips trips or dive into the unknown. It’s often where we encounter God and join Him in bringing heaven to earth. May this be a season of side-trips and being surprised by our surprising God!
