Journeys of life

Aventura de la vida. The Adventure of Life.

Life is such a journey. And you can take Life to mean the physical one or the spiritual one. Both are a journey together toward the end.

It's interesting to keep a journal or blog or some record of the journey. Opinions and feelings change. New paths and ways pop up. Detours happen.

Recently I was studying poems and the classic Robert Frost poem, "The Road Not Taken" caught my eye.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth.

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same.

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

And here is the idea for this blog. I am noticing more and more the path of my life. I don't know what is beyond the bend in the road. I only know where I am presently. And where I've been in the past. And I want to share it with you. I want to share the adventure I am experiencing in every day life as I endeavor to follow my Jesus. To follow His pathway. Because after all, it's not about me. It's about what God wants to do in and through me. And that's the real adventure.
