A ROAD LESS TRAVELED: That’s the story of my life! It’s would impossible for me to write about a road less traveled, without addressing how, over the years, it has applied to my own life. All my life, I’ve walked to a different drummer; sang to a different tune, dressed to a different mirror; attempting the unusual, the odd, the unexpected, and the unpredictable ….. All of which, was designed to keep the competition guessing… and the rest in a state of confusion.
I did it at age 20, and I’m still do it 50+ years later. I’m always looking for and “odd-ball-way” to do what no one else has attempted, cared about, or even wanted to do. I’ve never done it for gain or profit… rather just to prove that I could do what no one else thought possible; and on the rare occasion… not even myself.
Every town has a charlatan – the dunce who is always thought of as the under-dog (yet, still a wannabe)…yet always striving to be the top-dog. Never taking NO for an answer has been my life-time motto. I don’t say these things to be braggadocios – rather, I just wish to offer inspiration, to give hope to the hopeless, life to the lifeless, laughter to the sad ones, energy to the weak, a smile to the lonely, a helping hand to those less-helped, to teach and mentor the lost and forgotten, and LOVE to the those less-loved, and most of all…to SHARE those GIFTS that He has bestowed on my.
Hey… I’m not through sharing yet… I wish to share the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ, shouting it from the highest mountain, and whispering it to the lowest creature. Today…it is in sharing…the Gospel that I find those who seek the truth to their destiny… and, I “got the TRUTH.”
I don’t propose for anyone to follow my lead; rather I offer to lead those left-be-hind. I encourage them to SEEK THE TRUTH… to follow their conscience, to NEVER give up, and to seek God in their fellowman; for each of us is a reflection of God. We have only to LOOK-IN-THE-MIRROR. Genesis 1:27 – God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
