Chapter 3, Page 8, Book 11

Life is a highway on which the years go by,
Sometimes the road is level,
sometimes the hills are high...
But as we travel onward to a future that's unknown
We can make each mile we travel
a heavenly stepping stone!

Take Care Getting There On State Route 67

In my research I found out that there is a US Route 67 and a state Route 67...and that there is even a sports bar named Route 67...

I found that Route 66 was pretty nice cruising last year and this year I hope that the journey down Route 67 is just as nice or even better.

What I'm talking about of course is that I turn 67 this year. Sounds like it will be a great year for me! I know to some of you that seems terribly old, but truly you are only as old as you feel.

Life is a journey we all take. Bumps, ruts, speed traps and all. We travel a road that is completely unfamiliar to us and each turn and curve brings something new.

The Author of my story has a purpose for every page and chapter in my life. He’s got a story in mind and is building and developing the plot every day. No story is conflict-free. No story is complete without a challenge. Victory is empty without a struggle.

Today, I’m considering my life as a grand story. Good will triumph. The victory will be sweeter because of the struggle. Today is not the story. It’s just page 8 of Chapter 3, Book 11 . So I will press on, trusting in a loving and creative Author to bring about resolution. You see, I already know the ending – she lives happily ever after.

It is good to have an end to journey towards; but it is the journey that matters in the end.

It's going to be a TERRIFIC Tuesday here at my house!
Relax! Enjoy! Celebrate with me!

I copied part of your post today, to keep and read over. The Author of my story. You always have something I like.

This is a day that gets a lot of hoopla in Michigan, fat Tuesday. Everyone has to eat a "pons-ski", down in Kentucky we call them jelly donuts.

Happy Tuesday.

I agree, we are only as old as we make ourselves. I'm sure the trip down Route 67 will be wonderful. I love see so many wonderful places, meet new people and have fun along the way. Hope your Tues. is perfect. Hugs

I love how you wrote this, Ma; the Author of your story and that you know the end of the story; what happens between the pages is always one of trust as you know. Not sure if officially today is your birthday, but will wish it anyway since I know it is around this time; Happy Birthday!! May Route 67 be a good one indeed!
