I am reading through a friend’s manuscript for a new book he is about to have published. It prompted me to reflect, to revisit the landmarks of my past, as well as ponder where the divine “sherpa” is taking me. It’s funny isn’t it? I mean, take a look back. What do you see? Where have the footsteps left the biggest marks, as in, “No-o-o-o…I don’t want to go there!” Or, maybe you see the places where you stopped for awhile, and took in the view. Remember those moments on your journey where a laugh, a baby’s cry, a friend’s kind touch on the shoulder, made the expedition easier?
I bet you can trace your ice axe’s scars across the glacier of your life, and see that the “sherpa” didn’t miss a beat in getting you to more solid ground. Yea, it was sketchy for a bit, but the ropes held, the fog cleared, and you made it to another precipice where a new view would reveal the wonders of the journey.
Keep your eyes on the “sherpa.” The expedition isn’t over.
