Over twenty years ago, we had the opportunity to buy a wooded area adjacent to our property. When we bought it, I could immediately “see” the trails that would wind throughout the woods and provide us with beautiful views of nature and places to pause and feel its presence.
Although I “saw” these trails, they didn’t just happen.
It took me a couple of years of cutting, slicing, and dicing through trees, creeks, and ravines to create a peaceful, natural sanctuary that gives us much joy and gratitude.
Back to the opening quote…
You can dream, wish, expect, and envision all you want, but until you take action and begin cutting a path toward your dream’s destination–nothing happens.
Proverbs 6:6-8, “Go to the ant, O sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise. Without having any chief, officer, or ruler, she prepares her bread in summer and gathers her food in harvest.”
