Why 'The Road Home'?

When I started to blog, I figured I was starting a blog that no one would read about the fun in everyday life. But the more I wrote, the more life changed, and the more it became so much more.  Yes, I still write about the fun things in everyday life, but long before I fully realized it, I was also writing about my deepest dreams, sorrows, and joys down a less traveled road.

Today, this blog is about my road to my Eternal Home. I've taken many chances on this less-traveled road; shed many tears; felt many doubts; made lots of mistakes; and experienced grace and mercy beyond words. This road has led, and continues to lead, me home. It is the road less traveled. And yes, it has made all the difference.

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
