A Turn in the Road…

As I told a friend this morning…

Our road has taken a turn…

k9505486

The road to a long life together will be shortened…

We have had 47 years…

Not a short road by no means…

but, we had so many plans… in our minds…

things to finish…

things to visit…

things to do on our simple bucket lists…

But…

Life doesn’t work like we want all of the time…

Obstacles appear…

sometimes rocks… sometimes boulders…

sometimes hills… sometimes mountains…

sometimes creeks running slow… meandering along green pastures…

sometimes floods… heavy rains come down in a downpour…

God has given us many signs to relate how his world works…

The birds… animals…

The nature of weather…

The land how it grows and re-seeds itself…

The plants/trees that grown strong and then return to the Earth to make new soil…

and then there is HIS greatest creation… US!…

The birth of innocence…

The active/spontaneous child…

The youngsters discovering new things…

The young adults finding their way and setting goals…

The adults deciding on marriage/family/careers…

It’s beautiful isn’t it!…

Amazing… the perfectness of it…

So…

as my Bobby and I see this turn in the road…

crossing over “our bridge”… k12890945

looking toward “our sunset”… k8447935

we know it must be God’s plan…

The questions we have…

Does it matter…

We believe in a Heavenly Father who knows us so well…

that has created us…

who has listened to us…

who has directed us…

so we know HE will sustain us…

encourage us…

give us strength we never knew we had…

help us with burdens we seem to have no control of…

lead us to the right decisions …

and most of all…

LOVE us and hold us in his arms…

Feeling the security of having HIM with us,,,

Thank you Lord…
