Someone once said that I could “navigate my way through the Congo without a map,” and while I’ve never had the chance to prove that, there have been times when I’ve come pretty close. Like the time a friend and I took a wrong turn out in the African bush and had to find our way back to the city based on the location of the only landmark we recognized. I told my friend who was driving that if we could just get the mountain in the right window, we’d find our way back.
And we did.
It took a while, but we did.
Because when the scenery is changing all around us, keeping our eyes on what is constant is the only way to navigate. Like the north star, that mountain pointed us in the right direction and led us all the way there.
In the midst of uncertainty, the secret is to cling to what is sure.
It’s been a while since I wrote for Five Minute Friday, and I’ve missed it! Join us at Lisa-Jo’s, where we write for five minutes then encourage each other as well. It’s a great community and a lot of fun!
P.S. My husband would probably tell you that I can’t navigate my way around Walmart much less anywhere else. Some days, he’s definitely right!
