The adventure

The adventure

doesn’t have a simple map

nor a weather forecast.

Unexpected hills

unpredicted rain

twists and turns

surprises good and bad

interrupt the journey

punctuate the story

of life.

The bland

has a squared-out map

a detailed weather forecast

flat, easy terrain

time-confined rain

a straight road

planned out for hope

of conformity

to expectations

in life.

God calls us to adventure.

  1. “God calls us to adventure.” That’s for sure. I always recommend a seat-belt or lap bar, lol. Shalom! ~Beth
