As I back out of my driveway I can see all of my neighbor's azaleas in bloom. Azaleas are in bloom all around my neighborhood
and all down the roads
They create hedges between yards
or between streets
This arrow once led me to a destination, but I now take a different one
I follow a sharp curve, you never know what may be around the bend
around the bend I see wisteria, and azaleas covering a rocky slope
Left or Right...which way will my journey go?
Right......I follow the winding road
it leads me past a small roadside farm, where the goats are having their breakfast Their neighbor in the adjoining field, he always puts a smile on my face
A Christmas tree farm that has brought joy to many
azaleas creeping up behind a column
Wisteria growing wild along the road
Rainy roads....others are on their journey...or are they simply trying to reach a destination?
volunteer fire department....hopefully no one will need them today
I reached my destination right down the road past this field. So was the journey worth it?
Everyday God blesses us with so many amazing things along our journey, but we often do not pay them any attention....they are just on our paths to our destination. Open your eyes, and pay attention to the journey, it makes reaching the destination much more meaningful.
So my fellow bloggers.....are you on a journey...or just simple trying to reach a destination? To all of you out there, around the world....what is your journey like?

Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.
The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination.
