Turning Corners in Faith
It was still early, and the rain clouds had not yet unloaded their chilling rain on this January 1, 2013. So, I decided to press on.
I was cycling before it began to rain. If you don’t cycle, you may not appreciate the feeling of beating rain and cold. I had watched the weather and the clouds from the day before. I knew that if there was a New Year’s Day ride for me, it would have to be early. Now I was on the short ride, and I didn’t want to stop.
I crossed Lexington Drive, and I resumed the Bicentennial Greenway. Within three hundred yards the greenway split. First, I turned right and continued to a stop sign. Enough. I returned, and at the fork I took the left split.
There it was. Surprise. A park sign. Let me see where this goes, I was saying to myself. Within just another two hundred yards I was at the park. It was the Montlieu Elementary School park.
Four or five days of the week I ride past the school on my way to work. When traffic slows I look at the park and wonder where the trails and the walkway lead. I wonder how they connect with the other trails.
Here was one more of those lessons on faith. If only I would apply a little more faith and a little more foot power the surprise might be that I would find an answer to my questions.
