Sometimes there’s a fork in the path.
My friend and I were walking in the park the other day, having a lovely chat about life. I was telling him about my blog and some of what I write about. As we walked, we happened to be walking down a particular path that I’ve written about many times, and specifically, that steep hill I’ve blogged about a couple of times. I was telling him about those particular blog posts, and as we talked, he turned to me, pointed to that path and the fork in it, and said “but Krista, sometimes you can just turn and take the easier path.”
Sometimes we can just turn and take the easier path.
And there it was that day, right in front of me. A choice between two paths, one harder, and one easier. That particular day we turned, and we took the easier path....we still had a hill to climb, but it was not quite as steep, not quite as intense as that other path.
Sometimes there just isn’t that fork in the path, is there? Sometimes we have no choice but to go up that steep, hard hill. But there are times in life when we have a choice to make, and when we can turn and take an easier path.
My dear friends, if you have a choice this week, I deeply hope you can listen, you can discern, and you can know what path you need to be on….whether harder or easier.
I hope you have an amazing week my friends.
