Behind The Scenes - One Way

This is the picture that hangs in my bedroom.  Sometimes I can't stop staring at it.  We walked out on long pier to get this shot.  All the way to the end.  And we found exactly what we wanted even though we had no idea what that would turn out to be.  Looking behind us, it is all ocean.  I feel like that is where we came from in all this.  A big sea of past that we can't go back into.  And that's a good thing.  There is one way to get to where we need to be.  And we cannot go to the left or the right, for we would surely fall straight down into deep waters.  We must walk straight ahead.  The way is not flashy or exciting.  It's solid and sure.  It requires purposeful steps....but it will get us to where we need to be.  Dry land.  It reminds me of the path that is this journey we are on.  Choosing to follow Him and His way gave us sure and solid ground, getting us to exactly where we need to be.  Thankful.


  1. "the way is not flashy or exciting." Made me think of Joseph. He certainly did not live a life of glitz and glitter on the way to the top as Pharaoh's right hand man. Thanks for sharing today!
