Flashing lights

The other day, I was rolling along the highway when an approaching vehicle started flashing his lights. I immediately knew the signal. I checked my speed {notice, I didn’t say adjust} and waved to him as our vehicles passed.

Sure enough, a county Mountie was sitting in a driveway, hidden by shrubbery.

My friend gave me a head’s up … much like I have to others throughout my driving history. There is just something about traps that just doesn’t sit well with me.

But the crux of this post is the warning.

In a way, my blogs tend to be flashing lights in some way. As we journey along life’s highways, we have to learn to slow down to avoid the traps along the way. And as I read other blogs, I see their warning signals as well.

I don’t pretend to have all the answers. But I have learned through experience when you stop paying attention, you generally get into trouble. We sometimes have to take our foot off the pedal, slow down and take time to get back to basics. And sometimes we need a reminder from a kind-hearted stranger who simply flashes his lights.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Seeds of discouragement cannot take root in a grateful heart.

    “…when you stop paying attention, you generally get into trouble.” Reminds me of the lessons I am soaking in as I study 1 Peter. We always have to be prepared to make the right choice.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this subject!
