The journey is so very long.
The road is twisty and hilly, sheer drop, or rock cut rise up. Perils on every side.
The trees fly by, so fast they meld into a blur of shades of colour.
Pause for a moment on the shores of possibility, and breath deeply of the clean clear misty air. A re-centering of the spirit, the very breath of God filling your lungs. Peace, peace, peace.
The daylight guides the path, late into the night. The sun plays hide and seek with the hills.
Darkness falls. Traveling on.
The flashes in the distance. Unsure if they are of human hand. Far reaching, but from the height of the majestic hill perception can be unclear.
Zig zagging from the heavens, lighting to the ground, no mistaking now. Gasping in awe of the Creator’s mighty power over and over again. Spectacular and frightening! Sit, watch, wait.
The ground drinking deeply of the soaking rain. Needs provided from the heavens above. Rest, rest ,while the work is done.
As the rain slows, the weiry travellers continue onward through the dark.
Hazzards lurk in shadows, ready to make life altering dashes into the travelers paths. On guard and ready, shield of angels ever near. Sharpened focus, diligence, press on.
Finally the sky begins to brighten. The sun begins to play again.
Rising, rising, a new day. One destination, by faith, and perseverance.
The Master says “well done”. An arrival. Rest now weary travellers, your journey has just begun.
