This is the prompt for Kelli’s free write Friday Prompt, and I’m going to give it a whirl.
It may seem like roads diverge. That which we have our eye on disappears because we are firmly on another path. Like a boat caught in a current, we are swept along, seemingly out of control at times while other times feel like we have complete control of the rudder. We steer and navigate thinking that for the most part, we determine the outcomes of every detail of our lives.
We couldn’t be further from the truth. There is more at work then our paddles in the water. Where ever we are, whatever we are doing is right where we are supposed to be, experiencing the things we are supposed to be experiencing; the good and the bad, the hopeful and the hopeless, joy and sorrow, life and death.
And like Don McClean’s song Crossroads says,
So there’s no need for turning back
‘Cause all roads lead to where we stand.
And I believe we’ll walk them all
No matter what we may have planned.
