I read a memorable quote from the American writer Edgar Doctorow.
What he was talking about was writing a story without quite knowing how the tale would turn out. And it struck me that the words applied equally well to life....and to following your faith.
'It's a bit like driving along the road at midnight' he said.
'You can never see farther than your headlights but you can make the whole trip that way.'
Sometimes life seems big and scary,
Full of fears that look unknown,
Thoughts of future days may daunt us
When we face them all alone.
Stop awhile and look around you,
No-one walks the world forlorn,
Friends and neighbours share the journey
Through this sphere in which we're born.
Hear each other's hopes and worries,
Share their joys and bear their loads,
Paths ahead will seem much clearer
When, with friends, you search for roads.
Let companions lend you courage,
Let their laughter cheer your day.
Love can conquer every shadow,
Lighting up the darkest way.
I am so thankful every day for all my friends in Blogland lending me courage and cheering my day.
Blessings to you all,
