Christians – By the Book

We Forget to Marvel

by on Apr.24, 2019, under Amazing Life

Wednesday morning I got up early, 4:20am to be exact, and by 9 in the morning, I was standing in Jacksonville FL, a mere 728 miles from my home in Maryland.  In less than 5 hours, I had eaten breakfast, driven about 60 miles and flow 700+ miles. AND, I expected to do the same in reverse that evening and sleep in my own bed that same night!

Can you imagine trying to explain that to one of our founding fathers? The 60 miles I drove would have taken 4-10 hours by horse or 2 1/2 days by foot.  The 700 miles would have taken several weeks to a month by ship, winds depending. Over land, this would have taken approximately ~450 hours, which is between 57 and 75 days.  Just think of how many meals, beds, changes of clothes one would need. The cost was enormous and the supplies need would be tons.  I didn’t even take a tooth brush or a change of underwear.

The founding fathers would have had so much more to worry about, from the horse that would get left in Baltimore to transportation in Florida.  We just rent a car in minutes and we are off and running.  We really are blessed to be living in America in the year 2009.  Would that we would marvel at what we can do and that we would be thankful to God.
