A Toast to the Almost

This is a Toast to the Almost.

A nod to the nearly there.

An acknowledgement to the ‘mmmmmh’ before the shake of the head, “no”.

The bated breath as the eye closes and peeps through slanted eyelids to see if the finished line was crossed.

This is a Toast to the Almost.

This is to hope surging, excitement building as anticipation makes the body move.

To the heart-pounding, excitedly, waiting for the reciprocated embrace.

This is to expecting relief, reaching out to possess and escaping your grasp.

This is to seeing rest, to being able to touch it, dream about it, relishing it, being able to exhale.

This is a Toast to the Almost.

This is a Toast to the Almost.

A nod to the nearly there.

A reference to the sinking feeling.

A peace that the time is not yet right.

This is a Toast to the Almost.

A trusting that God makes all things work together for my good Romans 8:28

An assurance that to, everything, there is a season…a time for everything under Heaven – Ecclesiastes 3:1

A promise that God’s plan for me is good! – Jeremiah 29:11

The trust that even if it is the Almost, the Arrival. The Crossing. The Signing. The Concluding. The final destination will definitely be reached.

With that in mind, I confidently raise a glass, with gratitude in my heart, to the Almost.

Love and Blessings,
