Yellowstone Day 3: Old Faithful
Today was an amazing experience...I witnessed the explosion of Old Faithful. We had arrived early so we had to wait for the next "event." It made me think of life and how we prepare for different events.
Old Faithful's explosions have a unique quality. There is a consistent pattern of events, so if you miss one, you just wait for the next. We actually joked, "What if this was the time it didn't explode, wasn't faithful?" Life does not occur this way, where there are back up events should you miss the actual event, it would not be considered "faithful" in this sense.
How does that impact our preparation and flexibility? Knowing our lives are not "faithful." Plan but be prepared for anything. Don't expect life to be "faithful."
