semmering


"Between Austria and Italy, there is a section of the Alps called the Semmering. It is an impossibly steep, very high part of the mountains. They built a train track over these Alps to connect Vienna and Venice. They built these tracks even before there was a train in existence that could make the trip. They built it because they knew some day, the train would come." Under the Tuscan Sun

it was about faith. it was about belief. it was about everything i want to be about in these days. to step out. make some plans, and move forward. it's about"long obedience in the same direction." giving yourself fully to the one thing that ensures everything else of great value-Jesus. knowing that he will fulfill his promises for us, for many such things are in his mind (job said that somewhere...)whether we see it today,or the howl of the train is somewhere off in the distance, it doesn't really matter. the trains a comin'.
