My Thoughts
Experiences of life are like a Nascar race. It's a circular track, you're going to go through ever turn again and again and again, how are you going to handle the turns on the next lap? Are you going to hit that turn better prepared to not slip on the grease spot you're vulnerable to, or smack the wall again, like I've done a thousand times, or will we drive smarter.

But also remember His mercies are new every morning. Salvation is in Christ alone, does it matter how we hit the turns or just stop in pit row? But there's something to be said about winning the prize: like Paul said in 1 Cor 9, also talking about Nascar, 'Do you not know that in a race everyone drives, but only one gets the prize? Race in such a way as to get the prize.' We're going to go through the husband turn, the friendship turn, the son turn, the employee turn, the business trip turn (the hotel by yourself turn), the surfing on the internet turn, and others...how we hit the turns determine where we place. Of course the world watches just to see the crashes, but we know winning the race is more fun and satisfying.

(2015 Addition: I've heard and learned that the best way to improve your marriage is to be the best spouse you can be. If you're the husband, be the best husband in the world. If you're the wife, be the best wife in the world. Focus on yourself and your willingness to server the other and not about what you've demanded of your spouse and they won't give you. In the same way, the best way to have a great community, city, state, world is to be the best person you can be. So unless you enter into the turns in life knowing how to navigate well, you will crash ultimately degrading your community, city, state and world. [I'm not talking about salvation by works here, just how God designed harmony among people.] So, to have the best country, be the best at who you are and you'll find the world a better place. Example: if you're an alcoholic, make sure you don't crash by not drinking or drinking with a lot of accountability, so you're never drunk again.)

Drive on. Only briefly look in the rear view mirror and pay attention to your next turn.

Love,
Dad
