Connect The Missing Link

Not long ago I was running.  I had been a slacker for a while and was not in any sort of shape.  Those first few runs stunk.  They were pure torture and reminded me that it’s easier to stay in shape than get in shape.

I ran a simple out and back course on the bike path in our little local village.  On my way back during one of my runs I just quit.  I don’t know if it was my body or my mind that quit first.  I have my suspicions, but I don’t really want you to know whether I’m weak bodied or weak-minded.

I walked for a bit and picked it back up after a few minutes.  I ran the rest of the way in.  My thought when I got back to the truck was, “I’ve got to bridge that gap.”

I needed to connect the missing link in my run.

If you look out my back porch to the right, you will look directly down what I call Dunn Holler.  If you follow me on Twitter, you are familiar with my “Dunn Holler Report.”

If you look to the left and up the mountain, you will see something else entirely.  You can almost see where they are working on the Foothills Parkway.  In fact, early in the morning you can often hear the work already starting.

They’ve been working off and on this road for decades.  They are scheduled to complete it in a few more years.  When finished you will be able to drive from Wear’s Valley, just a few miles past where I live, all the way to what many motorcycle riders call The Dragon.

There are gaps in the Parkway that need to be completed.

They need to connect the missing links in the Foothills Parkway.

A few weeks ago we celebrated Christmas.  There was too much commercialism, as there is every year.  There were complaints about people saying Happy Holidays.  Most people became sick of Christmas music and ate too much.

We say that we celebrated Christ’s birth, but too little precious time was spent really focused on Christ.

He didn’t come into this to inspire a holiday.  He didn’t live His life so that songs would be written and sung to highlight His birth.

He came to bridge the gap.

He came to connect the missing link between us and the Father.

He came to be the Missing Link.

    Absolutely, 100% correct.
