Inasmuch, he’s seen his share of failed road trips, and challenging family vacations. Traveling through the nettles of congested Northeastern roadways could bring out the worst or the very best in folks. Recently, he and his family experienced a most unusual getaway, that challenged his notions of adult immunity to such experiences. Though, having endured the trip, they reformed a more intimate relationship with one another, and had one of the best vacations in memory. Jason also strengthened his communion with God, and observed His power displayed in many ways. Sometimes the perspective found in seemingly ordinary events, leads to resurgences of dormant thinking and the reinvigoration of Spirit. Though patience can be tested in every minute of day-to-day life, it can also be rewarded. He learned a little flexibility can go a long way toward appreciating Mother Nature, and toward valuing his fellow man.
