I originally took this photo meaning it to be just of cherry blossom. But when I got it up on my computer, I discovered it was more than that. A path, leading where? Well, actually I know, its in our beautiful park, and when I go down that path I have a choice of left, right or straight on over the stream!
But I am one of those people who must always know what is round the next corner! Many times I have walked further than I would have liked, just because I wanted to see what was next! (And then having to trudge all the way back!)
If I didn't want to know what was there, if I was just content with looking at a dead end, figuratively speaking, there wouldn't be much point in life, as far as I am concerned. I know others are not like me (Mr. G, for example, on walks!) When I suffered badly from depression some years ago, I couldn't have cared less about what was in the future, or what was in front of me. I would have been very happy with a dead end. Now I know I must always "see round the next corner". God is leading me there, and He will give me the strength to deal with whatever it is.
Meanwhile, the cherry tree is on my desktop, and I enjoy looking at it - when I am not in the park looking at the real thing!
