Linking up once again with Lisa-Jo Baker for Five-Minute Friday.

The challenge?  Write for five minutes on the word view.


the viewImage

from the rear view mirror

is always the clearest



and terrain gone by

overcome and conquered


but the windshield

the windshield is rather foggy

and i can’t always see my way


with limited visibility

i squint to discern what is ahead


i ask You to show me more,

but You say,



You say




i ask you to show me what lies beyond

that hill on this bumpy gravel path










but You say

follow the narrow road


i ask You to show me

where we are going


and You say

to the Celestial City

just like Christian

in Pilgrim’s Progress


just follow the narrow road


and You steer my car

and lead me

the whole way
