A Compass...a Track?
It's Spiritual Journey Thursday, hosted by Ruth at There is no such thing as a God-forsaken town, where we are reviewing our One Little Words for the year. How are you coming along staying focused?
For most of last year and this I have been speechless. I had no word. I had no words. Things have flown by me, over me, under me, around me...and I have been a passenger on this earth watching people and events whiz by. No words came to me...well, except maybe "help!"
It is now time for a word that will actually help me. The first word that came to mind just a few seconds ago while writing this was "compass". I am in need of a compass. I am in need of something with a constant and a direction. I will be continuing on a new and uncharted path, and for the most part, alone. It must be a good compass. A weighted compass that will not fly off in the windstorms that are sure to come. Maybe it is "track". I am on a track now...am I ON track? I am trusting that I am. I certainly feel like I am on a train with an unknown destination. Maybe I do not really need the compass.
Right now there are so many ways life could go...will I let it take me there, or will I be determining parts of the path?
I feel like Dorothy at the crossroads - only she got to pick a direction. I'm not sure I'm supposed to be choosing a way to go.
I'm not sure of the direction to take, no indicators of the destination. I have no set way to go yet, and I believe the path will reveal itself as I move along. There is no way to tell what September will look like - where I will be, who I will be with (if anyone), or why I am there.
Perhaps God will answer my plea to know a little more about the plan. Perhaps He will not. So far he's kept most of this part of my journey a secret from me. Such a strange place...curiouser and curiouser...
But I'm pretty sure I am "on track", to something that has been laid out for me just around the bend. I think I'm supposed to sit back and watch, and make some other lives comfortable along the way if the opportunity presents itself.

Way to ramble, Donna.
