Accepting Challenges

The crown of glory is obtained by the sweat of your brow.

 

Everything worthwhile is obtained by degrees

I have discovered by my own experience how such a challenge can be successfully concluded.

It is simply by moving forward one step at a time.

A journey of a thousand miles,

Is commenced by taking the 1st step

I also know by my own experience how such a journey feels and hurts

What has the open road done for me?

It has opened my mind and heart to the hidden reaches of a hidden existence.

I am sure there have been times when you too have pondered the meaning of life.

And come to the conclusion that it must be more than just a daily routine.

Yes it is. It is what I can best describe as the challenge of self-discovery.

Which to my mind is undoubtedly the greatest challenge to face any man or woman?

It is also the most difficult,The grandeur and scenery of the country road

Often prompts me to reach down into the deeper levels of my being,

And there to experience a depth of thought I never knew existed.

It sometimes only takes a misty morning,

Or the warmth of the sun on my back to make that contact.

It is the beauty of being a part of ones environment that does it.

It puts one in tune with creation,

Then one knows what perfect harmony is all about.

When this happens,

These are the thoughts you don’t forget,

Or the moments, for which you are truly grateful,

This is when you experience the taste of real freedom

Like a bird set free from a cage.

Like Jonathon Livingston Seagul

But they who wait upon the LORD.

Renew their strength.

They shall mount up with wings of eagles.

They shall run and not be weary

They shall walk and not faint
