The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.
I was thinking about about the spiritual journey I have been on, about ideas that are important to me, the things I have been learning, and thoughts I have wanted to make a note of, and possibly share somehow for others who are on a similar journey. An idea of a bear wandered into my world, and in its shadow it came the whispers of an idea. Not long after that, a name came to mind that just seemed right for this little journal of my own journey and walk with the Lord – Beth and Bear. (Beth had been a nickname I had for myself, when I was younger.) The picture that came to my mind’s eye was that of a girl, and a bear, and of a journey taken side by side, following a star.
So there you have it – I am Beth, and then – well, there is Bear. Welcome to my journey – I hope you find something that makes you think, or inspires you, gives you hope, a fresh insight on an old thought, or a little strength for the road. May God bless you, and may your own journey have many beautiful lights and insights to string together as you walk with the Lord through this strange and beautiful land.
– Beth 🌸
Once upon a time a girl was lost in a wood. One day she found a great big bear, and when she was with him, she didn’t feel so lost anymore. She found that a bear is somehow just the thing to have with you, when you are finding your way through the woods. 🐾
Just a little flower, turning her face to find the sun. I don’t always feel his rays on me, but when I do, the warmth and the feeling is simply wonderful, and I never want to be in the shadows again. Isn’t he lovely?
