The path to heaven is full of sinners and believers


If I had to sit back and think through my life and where I will end up, I would struggle to come up with an answer. Apart from the obvious one, in a pine box and six foot under.
On the long and winding road we call life, we come across many people, some sinners, and others believers. These people cross our paths for a specific reason, even if we don’t realise it at the time.


It may take months, or sometimes even years to understand why we these people ventured into our lives. They may have been with us for the briefest of moments or stayed with us for years, and are possibly still in our lives.

But sometimes it’s the people who come into our lives for the shortest period of time that make the most impact, or leave us wondering why we were with them for such a short time.

There is no simple answer to this, but most likely they came into our lives for a single purpose. They knowingly or unknowingly achieved what they were meant to do and then drifted off.

We can believe what we want, but the sinners in our lives are with us to make us see the grass on the other side. And it’s up to us to decide if we want to jump the fence and see if the grass really is the right shade of green other side and if it’s what we really want. Sometimes it is, and other times the grass has dried out lost its lush greenery.


Then there are the believers who come into our lives. Just like the sinners, they have shown up for a reason. That reason may be to show us we are worth more than we think we are and we are not a burden to others, as we may sometimes think.

Apart from having sinners and believers in our lives, we also need to follow the path we truly believe, either go and check out greener pastures by jumping the fence, or believing we are better than what we think.

No matter which path we take, it will all end in a pine box.


So while we wait to lay in that pine box, we need to enjoy the journey and do what’s best for us, even if others don’t agree with our descisions.

Heading in the right direction


We need to look deeper into our hearts and minds to really discover what we want from our future. A quick scan will more than likely miss what we are truly thinking. And that’s when we head off in the wrong direction.
The direction we take can impact us for longer than we want. An entire lifetime. But how do know what direction is really right for us?

There is normally one path that shines brighter than all the others. This is the obvious path. Or is it?

We will only know if we are on the right path once we have cleared our minds of everything else except for the path that lays ahead, and are certain there is no other way forward.


Once we know the right path, there is no sense in wasting time and procrastinating about the choice we are about to make.

Take that step into the right direction, your heart and mind will thank you forever.

A Roll Of The Dice

We sometimes look around at what we have in our lives and wonder if that’s the best we will ever have. Or are we just getting by and are happy where we are and how we feel. Do we need to push ourselves further? Is this a question we ask ourselves on a regular basis?

Everyone has different thoughts on what they want in life and where they should be at a certain time in their lives. From our teenage years and all the way through to retirement. No matter what our age, we wonder if we are track.

Some people think they should have a better career or be married with kids at a certain stage of their lives, but nothing is set in concrete and changes can happen in the blink of an eye.

Some changes can be seen coming from a distance, and they are the ones we can plan for. On the other hand, there are some changes we don’t see coming and are blindsided by them at the very last moment.

Whatever the situation is, you can always want something more, but you must be prepared to do something about it, and not sit around waiting for it to happen or for someone else to kickstart it for you.

Some changes may impact your life more than you want them to, but without going through the process, you will never know what it really is like on the other side of the fence, and if that’s the change that you have been searching for.

Take a chance and roll the dice. It may be the future you’re really looking for, and it may be waiting for you, to make you complete.

Signs – Pointing us in the right direction

Cycling, walking and life all have one thing in common. There are signs around us to tell us which way to go, what turn to take and where our destination lies. And if   that’s the direction we want to head, we need to follow the right signs. 
Some signs are easy to see, as they are posted on steeet corners or smack bang with in the middle of the road, making sure they are visible to one and all, whether we are on foot or on a bike. 

But there are times we avoid these signs and end up either lost, or so far away from our destination, we wonder why we didn’t follow them in the first place. Or why we completely ignored them in the first place. 

It seems that street signs are the easiest ones to see and follow, if we choose to follow them and continue heading in the right direction.

On the other hand, signs in our lives can be a little more subtle and take time, and sometimes a very open heart to see, and then fully understand. 

We need to look out for these signs that will keep us moving in the direction and ensure we follow the right path that will guarantee our happiness in the journey we want, and need to pursue. 


And then there are signs which can’t be ignored, like the one at Maccas stating that all Maccaroons are half price with any coffee purchase.  How could I ignore this one.
