Let Go of the Illusion It Could Have Been Any Different

Dear Reader:

Do you remember your first time driving through a ” roundabout ” …especially in a foreign country? Terrifying driving or riding-my first introductions to them were in Ireland. I felt like I was on a ride at Disney World wondering how to get off! Scary!

Years later they are here in Summerville and I still take a deep breath praying I will exit correctly so I don’t go round and round ” Ad Nauseam.”

But don’t we purposefully do this to ourselves when our minds keep circling and circling as to how we are in certain situations. Why didn’t we see the problem earlier so we could get off the ” roundabout ” faster?

We need to stop, refresh our faith in God that He is paving the path and we are to follow. He knows when and where to exit this particular interception. After all He is the Engineer Who built it!

Honey called me while working on the blog and I said I was looking over some quotes… she said one of her mother’s favorites was that even an ” Ill Wind Blows Good!”

Out of any upsetting situation appears something good you never saw coming. Already we are seeing family coming together to concentrate on the one in the flock who now needs help flying. So good to see everyone again.

So until tomorrow ” There May be circumstances in this life that God uses to keep bringing us back to Him… looking for His Grace.”

About Becky Dingle

I was born a Tarheel but ended up a Sandlapper. My grandparents were cotton farmers in Laurens, South Carolina and it was in my grandmother’s house that my love of storytelling began beside an old Franklin stove. When I graduated from Laurens High School, I attended Erskine College (Due West of what?) and would later get my Masters Degree in Education/Social Studies from Charleston Southern. I am presently an adjunct professor/clinical supervisor at CSU and have also taught at the College of Charleston. For 28 years I taught Social Studies through storytelling. My philosophy matched Rudyard Kipling’s quote: “If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” Today I still spread this message through workshops and presentations throughout the state. The secret of success in teaching social studies is always in the story. I want to keep learning and being surprised by life…it is the greatest teacher. Like Kermit said, “When you’re green you grow, when you’re ripe you rot.”
