This Way

"The Fellowship awaits the Ring-bearer." Frodo turns and walks forward, past a veritable who’s who of Middle Earth. He’s agreed to an impossible quest, carrying an incredible weight, to protect those he loves. It’s the right thing, and the hard thing. Before him, the path winds away to either side. Trying not to break stride, Frodo whispers over his shoulder, “Mordor, Gandalf, is it left or right?” And Gandalf quietly replies, “Left.”

That’s what I picture when I read, “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.’” (Isaiah 30:21)

**This may not be a long post...but it's a meaningful one to me. It's also my 100th. :-) **


  1. Congrats on your 100th post!

    Isn't there some saying about quality vs. quantity?

  2. Short and to the point - and what a very good point it is.

    Congrats on 100. :)
