Sometimes the path I walk upon
is bathed in golden sun,
Meanders through bright meadows
Where pure streams of water run.
Sometimes a fog obscures the view,
And rocks and thorns prevail,
The gradient makes progress slow,
Or rings with rain and hail.
Both are crucial to my road,
Both must have their place –
To one, I owe refreshment,
The other, strength and grace.
So whether I am stepping light
Or struggling as I roam,
I know each bend and every climb
Will bring me closer home.
This is just perfect and so true, Melody! Thank you!
Ah yes it is a journey.
With an end! Eventually. May your own journey bring you freedom, healing, and peace!
I have thot of those words often. Who wouldn’t want the blessing of those three? I hope your journey has the same.
I just came back from a conference in Arizona called ‘The Journey’. It has given me a dose of all three for my own heart. All three needful in our struggles along the way. Thanks, Lyle!
This is a wonderful poem 🙂 ❤ ❤

Aw, thanks. That’s awesome.
Ah yes, ah yes, ah yes…and what a beautiful photo to accompany your words.
Thanks Gallivanta! It is grace indeed to learn to accept even the pain as part of the process of becoming. May your feet steadily follow your path with integrity, honesty, and courage!
And with as few blisters as possible. 😉
Amen to that!!!! 😉
