Have you ever just sat on a train and watched the world fly past?

Right now, I am going past the Hawkesbury River and the train is only metres above the water. There is so much fog you can hardly see anything except for a few outlines in the distance. Closer to the train are two men fishing off a tiny boat, however they seem to be having no luck. Minutes later, another train zooms past but in the opposite direction, within those moments the two are side by side and there is an urgency of how fast we are actually travelling.

As you stare out the window, your eyes take a while to adjust and focus on what is covered in the fog, out in the water. It takes a while to get a clearer picture but never the less it does happen, and when it does, you can see the beautiful landscape imagery of the river and belongings.

Is that not what life is about?

Sometimes everything is clouded over so you don’t know what life has in store for you or what God has planned in your future. However, if you wait, if you stay focused on what is in front of you, it may just turn into a beautiful picture.

As I look out from the window of the train, over at the Hawkesbury River, I see the clearest crystal water. It’s the colour of dark green moss covered in tiny sparkles. You cannot see what is beneath the surface, only that whatever creatures live in their would be swimming to the sound of calmness and peace.
