Follow the White Line
Matthew 7:14

Follow the White Line
Winding mountains road leading to Three peaks of Lavaredo
Matthew 7:14 – “But the gate that opens the way to true life is very small. And the road to true life is very difficult (hard). Only a few people find that road.”

On our vacation, we drove about 2,600 miles. We knew that would be tough, so for my part, I told my wife we would set a timer and switch drivers every hour. The first day, we both drove 5 shifts. 10 hours of driving. It helped a lot knowing a break was coming hourly.

The other thing we did? My wife checked out some audio books from the public library. We listened to several on our trip. I would find myself engulfed in the plot of the story, and it turned the drudgery of mile after mile into a fun time. It helped me stay alert.

One of our day trips while in Ouray was to drive the Million Dollar Highway to Silverton. This is a treacherous mountain road with no guard rails. In places, the white stripe marking the edge of the pavement was the edge of everything of solid ground. If your tire got over the white line, you were on your way down the mountain the quick way. So, I watched the road and drove carefully, and Mary Linda watched me as I watched the road.

There were stopping places to get out of the car and take in the scenery. We took advantage of these. It reminded me of Beartooth Highway in Montana. Beautiful, but hard to enjoy. There is a fear of taking your eyes off of the road.

I enjoy studying road maps, for some reason. I like to know what is coming ahead, and where we have been. When our boys were young, we had some laminated placemats that were a US map, with highlights for each state. We would dream (while eating dinner) about where we would like to go on our next vacation. We went to Yellowstone, Mesa Verde, Grand Canyon, Destin, Port Aransas, Houston, Galveston, Gulf Shores, Mobile. We made some good memories. Something important to making a family, in my book.

Father in heaven, thank You for walking beside us on our strait and narrow journey, in Jesus’ name, Amen!
