“We are going to all get to that place where life hurts and our hearts are broken.
We are all going to find ourselves in the middle of a Plan B…
Being a Christian doesn’t change this reality at all.”
One of cool toys I remember from my childhood is the magic slate.
Did you have one of those?
It was one of the few things my mom would let me buy sometimes at the pharmacy, if I was a good girl. I’d walk up and down the toy aisle, browsing at the little toys hung up on metal hooks in plastic packages, while mom did her shopping.
The magic slate was a fave and easily got the stamp of approval from mom. I’d ride home in the car with a smile, with my prize snuggled safe in a small crinkly plastic bag.
After I unwrapped my slate, I went to town, drawing anything I wanted. When I was done with my picture, I’d lift up the plastic coat.
Magic. The picture I drew disappeared. Erased.
I could start doodling all over again.
It wasn’t too long– usually by the end of the day– the magic slate stopped working.
That plastic writing stylus apparently proved too much for the sticky black drawing pad. I’d etch some pretty deep grooves, even if I tried to press ever so lightly.
I could no longer create what I wanted, without the bumpy lines from the previous pictures messing things up.
No more magic.
I guess that’s how life feels like when I’ve hit the Plan Bs in my life…
