Do you know that song from Sunday school, the one about the wise man building his house upon the rock and the foolish man building his house on the sand? I honestly remember thinking, "Do we have to keep TALKING and SINGING about this dumb guy who built his house on the sand? Can't we just KNOW it and move on?" Even as a child, I hated conflict!
You know the Robert Frost poem, "The Road Not Taken" and I do, too. I keep seeing roads like this everywhere. A long time ago, a group at the church we were going to was reading the book, The Road Less Traveled by M. Scott Peck, MD. I remember thinking, "What's the big deal? I just don't get it." But I just checked out the book on Amazon and read through the table of contents. Hmmmm. Maybe all these roads I'm seeing are saying, "Read that book now."
I see roads and paths just like this one (this is actually my brother's driveway) and I find myself taking great comfort in not knowing why. Smile.
There are little surprises everywhere. There are astonishing connected events and thoughts everywhere - I'm sure you've felt it in the blog world, just as I have. What do all these repeated images, repeated words, repeated truths MEAN? When YOU hunker down and write in your journal, read deep writings, sit on your back porch drinking tea and drinking in the invisible, what is happening to you? What's God doing in your soul? What kind of appreciation is surfacing? What "ah ha" moments are lighting up? What do you know today that you didn't know yesterday? Tell me, tell me, please.
