Hungry

Big. Yellow. Truck.

Don’t ask me why. But for the past year, that is what I have wanted. A big yellow truck, with 4 X 4 of course. I’m sure it has something to do with my obsession with the mountains; each time I see one it reminds me of hiking, boots and well worn sweatshirts on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It would allow me to go where I wanted to go.

Now, if you knew what I drive now, there is no comparison. My small black Scion XB; the small “box” car that get 32 miles to the gallon is completely practical; very frugal. It speaks of the Lynn most people know.

Ready to break out of that shell, a year ago I started my search. I researched the big…yellow…truck. I learned about it’s gas mileage, it’s dependability, it’s strengths. I began to search. Not just near me, but I would seek to find out where the yellow truck was and how much it would cost to ship it to me.

Nothing else appealed to me. No luxury. No practical. Nothing; just the big…yellow…truck.

I didn’t care that my husband didn’t get it. I didn’t mind that my daughter said it would look like my mid-life crisis. It didn’t bother me that it wasn’t practical or ladylike.

Setting out to finally take the plunge, I drove an hour away to get “the one”. But they wouldn’t budge. Wouldn’t meet me. I walked away. I knew what I wanted and I refused to settle.

The day came. Yesterday, I drove again. One hour. Same truck. Same dealership. This time; I got it. I got the big. yellow. truck. The wait is over. I have my prize. The time, money and investment worth it.

Jesus…this year, I want that obession to be You. I’m going to do my research; dig into your Word – not just read it. I don’t want to look for or at anything else; You are the One I want. I won’t be satisfied until I am in Your presence. I don’t care what other people think or if You worshipping You with all my heart, soul, mind and strength can be impractical or unladylike. I want to be completed in You.

P.S. Teresa asked to see the big. yellow. truck. Here you go!
