Trim as a word in general has a lot of meanings. For the sake of analogy, three definitions stand out to me: 1) the woodwork or other material detailing the finish of a building. 2) to free of excess or extraneous matter by cutting. 3) to adjust (as a surfboard) for horizontal movement or for motion upward or downward in the face of a wave using the rails, fin and body position in conjunction. My favorite one is of course the surfing description, but all of them display an effort to move toward a desired destination or end product. Life is in the details — part of it is knowing where you want to go and part of it is the pure enjoyment of the ride. It’s interesting to see that along the way, if we pay attention, we discover what we really need and what can be “trimmed” away to arrive where God intends. I’m a husband, a surfer, a builder, a designer, and an aspiring drummer who is trying to fine tune my own journey, experience new things, and share any tricks I learn along the way.
