You can close your eyes to the things you do not want to see, but you cannot close your heart to the things you do no want to feel.
October 22nd -close the gate
Excerpt from my daily devotion :
There is a story about two men walking down a country lane and across some fields. One of then forgot to close one of the gates. After seeing some cows, he realized his mistake and walked back to close it. He said it reminded him about the words an old man had shared with hm many years before.
As you travel down lifes pathways, remember to close the gates behind you.
Soch advice is one we could also keep close. Life is never straight forward and there are many attractions, distractions, obstacles and challenges. We sometimes make mistakes, we could have made better choices and sometime we regret not having done something completely different.
But we shouldn’t allow those to dominate us or take over our lives. That is why it is so important to close the gate and move on. We need to know there is no need to reopen gates and go back.
We need to move forward and cherish each day as a fresh start and a new beginning.
I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned the hard way, that some poems don’t ryhme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning. middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious Ambiquity.
