We climb to heaven most often on the ruins of our cherished plans, finding our failures were successes. ~Amos Bronson Alcott
We often follow the manuals of life provided by others. We take it step by step not expecting to be waylaid from the instructions…however things don’t always turn out the way others tell us or we plan.
Nature’s stairways lead us to beautiful places. Life’s stairways do the same. Sometimes we aren’t aware that in fact we are taking the first or second step to a new scene in life. We just look back someday and see the stairs we climbed.
We have literal staircases, natural and manmade, and we contain internal stairways. Among these passages we each have our own personal staircase/connection to the Almighty. So do we really need someone else to build us a staircase or an escalator to get there?
We often think we build our own staircases, but do we really? Maybe we simply climb the stairs provided. Or maybe we are just treading along and heaven scales the staircase to walk along with us.
