karl rang jsut as i was leaving so i turned around, parked the car, made some coffee. it was excellent to spend some time talking about exciting possibilities for things at YFC. summer harvest is going to be good this year. i’m excited about it.
as i have referred to here previously, i am keen to sell my car and to get back behind the wheel of a manual. preferably a manual wagon that handles like a sports coupe. anyway, this was compounded in my interest today because karl was driving a very nice WRX STi sedan. 6 speed tiptronic, and i had to follow it out the driveway and down paremoremo rd. green with envy all the way. and then i was re-reading cory’s post with the interview questions… and he had written this… which spoke to me.
driving the speed limit. this small act of slowing down is a symbolic reminder that i must slow down in life. i cannot maintain the breakneck pace of the world around me if i am to hear His whisper and connect in real ways with people. as cars rush by i am reminded that i must live in the world, though i live by a different set of standards. at times i will be pushed by someone riding my tail. at these moments i have a decision to make: will i be a thermometer, reflecting the values, the pace, the life of the world around me? or will i be a thermostat, setting the temperature, the standard?
