one of those moments...

Crawling into a hole....

hiding in a huge empty room....

Underneath the stairs in a rickety old house....

All things I could do right now.

Things keep happening. Things that make me think for a moment that maybe I could stay. Maybe I could settle. Maybe I could even be happy.

But it's like the moment the thought enters my head that something else happens which causes me to double take and shake my head in dis-belief.

The conclusion.... can't be a God thing, right.

When the path is supposed to be straight out before me, I keep twisting and turning, tying myself up in complicated knots.

What if the wool were to just unravel, and I were to sit here and let it unwind from around my swollen ankles?

What would happen then?

David ~ thanks for checking it out, and the comment.

Robert ~ thanks. I'm thinking God wants me to do something, just need to figure out what. hehehe. Doors slam around me, and I stumble - but know he's got it sorted.

Enjoyed the photo. It puts many things in my mind - wonder if the bridge is safe - how well is it maintained - what is really on the other side - but if one wonders too much one would never cross to see the adventure on the other side. It has been my experience that if God closes one door He opens another - just a thought. ec

Mr Eddie ~ You've inspired me. I'm off to hunt for the perfect door for my next shot. :)
And yes... God knows where the next one will open. Thank goodness.

My you find the courage to keep on going, n not play with "What if?" too much.
I've had such big problems not settling for less than I want (in relationships), I've had to settle for work I don't like tho!
Life goes on, we survive, n God shines a light for seeing a way thru.

Your words are so intense n beautiful. Good work, excellent pic!

praying that you sort it all out with God's help

Hey Snaggles ~
I'm sorry I've been so slack about checking in on your lately. Thanks for being better at it! :)
Yes... the old settling instead of seeking what God wants for us instead. Thank goodness He is in control!!

David ~ AMEN!
Hope all is grand with you and your treehouse. :)
