THE PATH

The path led me beside a creek,
Whose water flowed gently along.
IT was so peaceful and lovely,
I could only break out in a song.

 

Then the path turned up a steep hill,
Through a forest of large, old trees.
I had to breathe hard as I climbed,
Until I was brought to my knees.

 

At last, I was led to a place
Where I could relax for a while.
I laid on a table of stone,
Whose comforting warmth made me smile.

 

After resting, I journeyed on
Over mountains and rugged ground;
Through meadows and alongside streams;
To villages, cities and towns.

 

The path still leads ever onward;
To places I have never seen.
It has never taken me back
To where I have already been.

 

So every day, I continue
On the journey that’s set for me.
To discover, grow, live and serve,
Alone and in community.

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
