From an email friend, Patti Hastings

The Bend in the Road

Sometimes
we come to life’s crossroads
And we view what we think is the end.
But God has a much wider vision
And he knows it’s only a bend-

The road will go on and get smoother
And after we’ve stopped for a rest,
The path that lies hidden beyond us
Is often the path that is the best.

So rest and relax and grow stronger,
Let go and let God share your load
And have faith in a brighter tomorrow.
You’ve just come to a bend in the road.

I went round many bends, and it made me stronger.
