“When you find your path, you must ignore fear. You need to have the courage to risk mistakes. But once you are on that road… run, run, run, and don’t stop til you’ve reached its end.”
José N. Harris, MI VIDA: A Story of Faith, Hope and Love

I’m not quite sure where my attraction to stop and make a quick photo of the long and straight roads that I often travel originated. I kind of think it stems from growing up in West Texas and having traveled down so many long and straight roads. It some how brings me comfort to see where I am heading.

Or maybe it is that I am always searching for a way to follow and some reassurance that I am going the right way.

” But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” (Matthew 7:13-14, NIV)

We have been blessed with very spring like weather the last few days. It has been shorts and t-shirts the last few days. Hope the trees and plants are a little wiser than me and do not bud too soon. I can remember several Easters where we have had ice and snow.

“Nothing behind me, everything ahead of me. As it is ever so on the road” Jack Kerouac

It is even a grander adventure and there is much more to be seen with fours eyes instead of two.

Happy Valentines day to all, may you enjoy it with the one you love, I will!   en theos †††jim

“All my life affection has been showered upon me, and every forward step I have made has been taken in spite of it.”
George Bernard Shaw

I started looking for some powerful words to go with this weak image. I got lost in cyber-world for too much time reading all the motivation words that have been written about taking the first or next step.  BrainyQuote alone had  32 pages full of quotes & sayings. Somehow this gave me some comfort. I must not be the only one that needs encouragement for taking the next step.

I am not sure why I even like this image but it just seems to be the view I see a lot of the time. My problem has never been taking the next step, but to find the right direction.
