The Painting:  This is just a small glimpse of what I am working on right now.   It is a brilliant painting shot full of color and thick layers of acrylic.

The Thought:  This morning we were up early in the hot tub again...before dawn and enjoying the sunrise.  Retirement is pretty nice so far!  What comes next today is in His Hands.


Have you ever heard the expression,  Are you on the fast track?  What exactly does that mean in today's world?  


One ad I saw was referring to fast track of personal fulfillment.  Another was parking at the airport...and yet another was how to "fast track' your fund raising.  Those are but a few things coming up in my internet search.  How do you compete in today's world in the work place, in the market, at home or even driving from place to place?  One of my favorites is the fast track to understanding the web and computers.  I am laughing.


How can you be on the fast track with God? One article in the Chicago paper was 'Serving God on the Fast track.'  This meant fasting...like not eating.  It was comparing the fasting of Moses and Jesus to the fasting of people in today's world... yep, on the Fast Track with God as they go day by day with out food...praying and fasting as they move closer to God.  Good site to read about this:  http://christianity.about.com/od/whatdoesthebiblesay/a/spiritualfasting.htm


Another website for a church spoke of the fast track to God being the ONLY road to God, through Jesus to the Father... that is their 'fast track' in spirituality.  And still another site spoke of a Fast Track to Sainthood under Pope John Paul II.  He elevated 483 individuals to sainthood, more saints than any other pope. 


How would you describe the Fast Track in your life?  What are you on the fast track to right now? What is your destination and your goal? How hard are you working at achieving it?  Finally, is it a fast track to God?  Is He part of your plans?
