Bends {Personal}

"'Oh, I've dozens of plans. 
 My future seemed to stretch out before me like a straight road. 
I thought I could see along it for many a milestone. 
Now there is a bend in it. 
I don't know what lies around the bend, but I'm going to believe that the best does.
It has a fascination of its own, that bend,
 I wonder how the road beyond it goes -- 
what there is of green glory 
and soft, checkered light and shadows
-- what new landscapes
-- what new beauties--
what curves and hills and valleys further on...

God's in His heaven, all's right with the world,' whispered Anne softly."

Here's to God in His heaven and the bends in our lives on this Monday evening.  Here's to that.
(and friends who read Anne of Green Gables for me, so I only have to steal the quote from them :D)
