Today is January 20.
You could say that modern life as we know it began on this day 129 years ago - why?
On this day in 1885, L A Thompson patented the first roller coaster. The ups and downs, twists and turns, highs and lows of life, coming at us at breakneck speed are a fact of life as we know it. Any one of our days is more like a thrill ride than a pleasant stroll. Indeed, an amazing number of us have no concept of what it is to be still. Motion and commotion are our stock in trade.
Today, force yourself to be still and know that God is God.
Get off the roller coaster.
