Last night I had a dream. (It had been a fairly difficult day and I was very tired). I dreamt I was writing a mid-week blog. I woke up with this entry clearly on my mind. Perhaps it is to be a blessing for someone ‘out there’.
I often walk a gouged out forest road where they lately have been harvesting all the trees.
The road has been difficult to walk upon and I usually walked with care. After heavy rain I came to a section that was washed clean and the almost marble-like strata caught my attention. Washed of dirt and grime there were layers of rock fused together. Some of the colours were stunning in the sunlight. (Dirt and constant road traffic and this section of road is now difficult to find).
A quotation from Robert Louis Stevenson somehow fitted as I began to write.
He wrote…..The best things in this life are nearest, breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers or wonders at your feet, duties in your hands and the path of God is just before you.
May this week still unfolding before you bring both blessings and surprises. I’m still amazed at the beauty I discovered in a rough road not going anywhere important but just a part of life.
Blessings! Peace! and Hope! to all.
