I have always been taught to stick to the straight & narrow path.
I like to think of the side squares here as little distractions, temptations,
or influences that take me off the path for even just a minute.
There are so many times when I pause before taking the next step
& I wonder... "Is this all really worth it? I can't even see where
this pathway is going. Is there hope & light at the end?"
This is how I feel like the path in my life looks-
Beautiful & the pathway is straight, but I never
exactly know what is around each corner, or for that
matter, what is coming up next.
This is where my faith comes in.
Although I can't see what lies in front of me,
or around the next bend, I take joy in the beauty around me.
The path would be easy if it looked simple
& I could see the reward in plain sight,
But instead, I look forward with hope,
for one day I will find the end of the rainbow
and join all those who have followed the path as well.
And what joy awaits, to be gathered together
with Heavenly Father & Jesus Christ & all
those we love of never-ending peace & happiness.
