Holy Spirit, What A Ride! by Delores Start
Stories are where the life is: All the fun we have and all the ’life-stuff’ we face. As life unfolded I wrote, not a daily journal, but incidents I could not have imagined. Laughter, prayer, and saving grace get us through the ’iffy’ parts and help us enjoy the rosy parts more fully.
A charmed life? A life of bliss? The joy was in the love shared. The journey has been like all journeys: high, low, rough, tough, unbelievable, and stressful — but glued together with love and almost always including a funny side.
As a teen I often prayed, “Please God, don’t let me get married right away. I want to travel!”
Had I been more aware of the ways of the world, I would have rephrased that high school prayer by adding “first class!” God would have had a good laugh.
