Today is 5-Minute Friday when we write for five minutes on one specific word without listening to those critical voices. We write simply out of that creative spirit deep inside. Join me, Lisa-Jo at The Gypsy Mama, and many other soul filled writers as we link up today for 5-Minute Fridays. Today’s word: Path
Walking along the dusty road that day I came to the edge where the Y made a choice. Looking right, some of it went that way. Looking left, some of it went the other. I chose the other and started walking up the now slanted path again.
But there were some twists and turns along that path, and a large fallen oak tree in my way. I climbed up one side, bark chipping away without giving me any firm grip of my feet, and finally down the other side, and I wondered . . .
“I should have chosen the other way, the way that went right, then this tree wouldn’t be in my way and the road wouldn’t be crooked. ”
His voice whispered back at me, ever so softly, “No, but on the right side there were two mountains, as tall as the eye could see, and a river that flowed fiercely through the valley deep below”.
All paths bring trouble, I then knew in my heart, and I continued on my way, knowing He was already there.
