Dabar [theme]

He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou find refuge: His truth is a shield and buckler
Psalms 91:4

Be it ours,when we cannot see the face of God, to trust under the shadow of His wings. C.H. Spugeon

The Road

“One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. Which road do I take? she asked. Where do you want to go? was his response. I don't know, Alice answered. Then, said the cat, it doesn't matter."

It does matter! Every road leads to somewhere, every road either broadens the vistas of opportunity or narrows the strictures of possibilities. A road can lead away from captivity, pain and chaos to freedom. Or a road can lead away from order, love and safety to anarchy, confusion and imprisonment.

It matters! The road taken may have irreversible consequences from which life may not have resolution.

It matters! The road may have bumps and potholes, rocks and sinkholes, but it must be understood where the journey is to end, what goal is to be reached.

It matters! Those who have gone before and left behind the signposts, the mile-markers wanted to ensure that those who came behind would know and understand the treacherousness of the road and avoid the obvious and obscure dangers that exist, and to protect the followers so that their journey would be safer.

It matters! Many times the pioneers of the road find their efforts are in vain.

It matters! ... for they are in pain ...

It matters! The distance we travel is never so far that we cannot turn around ... and come back.

May all those who are journeying today, find safe passage from where they are to where their loved ones want them to be ...
