He stood there at the edge of the dirt road, just before the stone bridge path before him. He didn’t know what was beyond the bridge and this made him hesitate… Should he cross the bridge into the unknown? Or should he remain on the side that seemed familiar and safe?? He clenched his eyes shut and tried to think of what he wanted, what felt like the right path..
After a few moments he opened his eyes and looked once more at the stone bridge before him, fog lay just ahead of him, just enough to block a clear view of the other side. It would take a few steps of faith to get him across. It was already taking too long to make this decision, he knew this, so he clenched his fists and made his decision. He took the first step, then the second, and after a few steps he made it the other side of the bridge.
The journey was much easier than he thought. Once he was across he saw before him a scene better than he could have ever imagined…It was perfect.
