There's a beginning.
There's an end.
And, there's the dash in between.
The dash in between is the life we live between being born, and dying.
It's full of our parents hopes and dreams, anticipations, cries, and maybe even disappointments.
It's crammed with friends, possibly siblings, strangers, our own families.
Or, maybe we are all alone.
The Dash; has stuff, lots of stuff.
It's full of countless choices, thoughts, and decisions.
Thousands of celebrations.
For some, it is short, way too short. For others, it is long.
It has a tendency to be riddled with fear as age creeps upon us, or maybe it is loneliness.
The dash is often accompanied by illness, anxiety, and stress.
So many hopes and dreams for this dash----
When I come to the end of my dash, all of these will be true for me.
Jesus holds them all, and so much more.
Dance in your dash.
And, when it comes to the end, even though there is sadness, I would like to think that my dearest friends have the courage left in their dash to dance for me!
