Journey In The Fields Of Forever
Perhaps, in the never-ending search for meaning, not only does meaning seem to elude us, but we find ourselves faced with the eternal questions of life. Why do roadblocks always appear at the most inopportune moment? Where is help when we are down in the arena and boots are on our necks? Why am I here and where am I going? Will I ever again see my loved ones who have died? And so it goes . . . on and on. Although no one could satisfactorily answer such questions, there is something deep within each one of us that whispers hope and says that no matter how dark the way and how deep the snow, the paths of glory lead ever onward and all roads finally lead home.
This book is the story of a journey in living. The characters reveal to us a sense of joy and yet, at the same time, we feel their pain. This book is about me and you, about our constant, endless quest for that which seems unreachable. Some of us have already met in previous books such as When You Can Walk on Water, Take the Boat and Morning Has Been All Night Coming. Others of us will meet here for the first time and continue together on a fascinating voyage which leads through the fields of forever.
As the world spins on with dizzying speed into the future, we find ourselves caught up in the uncertainties of our times. But such uncertainties are not new. They have always been with us since the days our ancestors roamed the wild, prehistoric plains and they will always be with us in the future. What we must do is reinterpret the way we look at the world. Perhaps, then, we may find that life is biased on the side of good, that difficulties have a way of passing,that change is a constant and that we are all children of an infinitely, wise and benevolent God.
With new meaning and understanding, we will find the world to be a much friendlier place, our home away from home. Then will we be able to stand calm when the lightning strikes, to be patient in the midst of the storm and to be centered in the midst of chaos. All roads lead home. May you enjoy the adventures in the Fields of Forever.
