Short cuts?

My honey and I love to travel, to get out and go someplace we have never been or return to a much loved spot.

We started out in our relationship with two ways of thinking of how we could get to where we wanted to go.

I for one would like to know when, where, how far, what will I need while I am there. (Will it be cold or hot, do I need a swimsuit.) So many questions running around in my mind. Yes, I am a planner by heart. Get me from point A to point B in the most direct route possible so the fun can begin.

My honey, give him a toothbrush (we found that to be very important to have on one trip early on, somethings I just will not share, Just sayin! ) and as long as he has sandals and shorts he is good to go, anywhere even skiing. Just makes me cold looking at it, his shorts are in the car for after. sandals in the snow

He also likes to take short cuts or scenic routes to get from here to there. It may not really be shorter at all, it could add hours on to the trip. His view is – the minute we leave the driveway we are on vacation or our trip has started. So if it takes time to get there that is okay, it is the journey that counts.

It has taken us many years to get on the same page as far as this goes. He has a good point, you will see many things on a short cut that you would never see on a point A to point B trip. He also has come to the understanding that sometimes you do need to go directly to your destination.

You must know when it is time to take a short cut and when it is time to travel the longer road to get to the point that God wants you to be at. If you take a short cut when you know that you are not ready to get to the point God has told you to be, then there are lessons that you will not have learned along the way.

Pray about the road you are to travel and know that you are going there for the right reasons.

Short cuts can be nice and they can bite you in the ass in the end.

Just a random thought.

See you next time.

    Good post. We do some of both as well. AND then there is a longer version – what we like to call the scenic route. It may meander here and there all over the place and put on many more miles than a direct route or a shortcut. You’re right; they can all be fun and when all mixed together can enrich the journey.
