the ship in the sea

I reserve this space mostly for art. and I have tried to keep it that way. There are times when it cant be. Everyone in life walks a path. That path is dictated by the choices we have made and sometimes we look back. we all do it. We say, "If I could do it again I would have...." but we never really get the chance. When we look back sometimes we are filled with horrible regret or sorrow for what might have been. The opportunities lost. In the end the path that has brought us here really only matters if we learned from what it taught us. Right now we can make changes to follow the path we want. I have walked a long road of emotions. If you look at it it has been a bit rocky to say the least. What gets me by is that I know those bumps in the road were for my good. I thank god for those hard times because they taught me things and made me better.

I stood on top of a mountain this summer. One with no trail to its peek. I stared across the vista and I came to a bold recognition as to how small I am, how vast the world is, and how big God must be to manage it. God has my life planned without even trying hard. To him its a piece of cake and while it seems so rough sometimes to me and so hard, my viewpoint is that of someone in the valley below the mountain who only sees a small portion of the world.

I will enjoy tomorrow whatever it brings. My God steers the ship, and i know he will bring us home safely.

  1. I really like your mantra "I will enjoy tomorrow whatever it brings". I think that when I get anxious, I'm going to use this thought to help zen me out again.

    I sound new-aged... so I'm gonna stop now.
