Weekly Photo Challenge: The Road “Not” Taken

For a similar reason as the poem written by Robert Frost.  Fear, the great destroyer of plans, dreams, options, etc.  Doubt is also something that leads us to make wise decisions as well giving us time to rethink everything.  Don’t ever think of fear as a bad thing.  Yes, excessive or unreasonable fear can cripple you but sometimes you need to hold back.  Sometimes fear is that sane part of you when you wish to be reckless.  It can save your life.

For some reason my roads have always been very well thought out and planned but never turn out as I expected.  The roads all seem to lead to dead ends for me but I don’t feel sorry for myself because I have had many blessings in my life.  I believe in the will of God so I don’t question anything I do with good intent.  It appears that something always works against me in my life, but maybe it is working for me.  It is said that God knows what you need even better than you do yourself.  I can safely say I have always been level-headed and actually had a life plan written out much as some create business plans before going into business.  Short-term and long-term goals.  I think many do this.  I wonder how different my life would have been if I had just “winged” it, at least once in a while, instead of being so cautious or anal retentive.  Taking that path where I feared to tread, not fallen and not gotten lost, who knows?

 

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: On Your Path to Righteousness

There is help.  We were sent a comforter, the Holy Spirit, to guide and comfort the children of God after Jesus was crucified.

Of sin, because they believe not on me;

Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;

Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

John 16:9-11

Well, me for instance, from the beautiful Son.

The twinkles that shine at Christmas time.

Sun dancing through the ice crystals after a storm.

Sunshine reflected on Lake Huron.

The beauty at the end of the day is such a blessing to behold.
