Beauty in the Detours
This little phrase really caught my attention:
"Happy is the person who can enjoy the scenery when they have to take a detour"
I never want to be so focused on destinations and end results that I miss the beauty of the path that takes me there.
This becomes more difficult when the path suddenly takes a sharp turn, an apparent 'detour'.
Is that unexpected twist in the road a true detour, or is there something very special along that route that has been divinely staged for my benefit?
I don't want to become so distracted by the twists and turns of life, that I miss the hidden treasures or the breathtaking beauty of the big picture.
