Life Can Be a Spaghetti Map

7 Sep

On the Porch

Onisha Ellis


Last week I wrote about clouds; benign clouds that covered the eclipse as well as painful ones that covered the soul.  This week brings a new array of clouds. Hurricane clouds. Friends and family in Florida are busy preparing for the monster storm, yet some seem to be paralyzed by indecision. Should we evacuate or should we stay? Who can blame them with projection maps like this? Decision time will come in the next 24 hours for Central Florida.


Hurricane Irma Spaghetti Map


Life is fraught with storms and sometimes our lives seem to resemble this map as we try to navigate between our jobs, families, activities and yes, heartache too. I feel this way. But God is so loving and sends encouragment when its least expected. For me it was in the restroom of an indoor flea market.



I like the rest of the verse too.  In The Message paraphrase it reads like this:

“Step out of the traffic! Take a long,
    loving look at me, your High God,
    above politics, above everything.”

    This hurricane has been hard to deal with. Those who left the east coast & fled to the west coast are now facing the heart of the storm. It’s a huge storm that will effect the entire state now. Praying for safety.

    You got that bottom line, for sure! Great post. I liked the Face Book one you put out about it being illegal for hotels, etc. to refuse to take pets and service animals. We’re staying, but it helps to know that.
