Sometimes, when I'm out driving, I see a road that draws me in. I find myself wanting to head down that road and imagine that some great adventure awaits me there.
There are a few roads like this in my area that I have never been down. I'm saving them for some lonely afternoon, or keeping them a mystery because...
... sometimes when you take a road like this they turn out to be just another ordinary road.
Okay, I admit that I usually take every interesting road I see, because I'm looking for great pictures to share with my blog readers. And I am obsessed with the beauty of God's creation.
Furthermore, in my area there are surprises around every curve in the road. You never know when you'll cross a hill and see Amish children riding a pony. One rainy day on my way home from work, I passed a farm where a plain-Mennonite family lives. Two boys were out flying a kite in the rain.
Next time you see a road that seems to be drawing you in... take it! If you find some great adventure there, it will be worth being late to wherever you were going. If it's just another road you haven't lost much.
