One Shovel At A Time


I saw this man the other day. He was doing his best to chart a path in the snow. Although the task was physically and mentally taxing; although the danger signs were everywhere; however, he persevered, knowing well that a walkable path could be made possible if he was committed and determined to complete the task in hand.

Stepping into the unknown can be daunting. Not knowing where to turn and where to set our first step can leave many of us feeling vulnerable and lost. Quite often, when we are vulnerable and lost in a world that is uncharted, the only way that we can get a sense of direction is through digging, from where we stand. Step by step, one shovel at a time, a path will be revealed to us.
