When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

Life Is A Freeway

The Freeway
                                    by Patricia A Pitterle

My friend and I 
were driving down the freeway
in the late afternoon.
The traffic
slowed to a stop
and we sat there, 
and waiting,
for everyone else to start moving again
so that we could travel home.
The traffic inched forward slowly
and our car, 
like a small boat moving
in a vast sea,
seemed to make 
little noticeable progress.
Until finally
we became aware 
of familiar objects
and eventually reached
our destination.

Funny, isn't it?
How life 
is like that freeway
with starts and stops 
along the way,
And just when we want to pick up speed
and go somewhere
we can't seem to get past
another bumper.
We dream,
we hope,
and we plan
for tomorrow.
A time when we can go forward
with no bumps or bruises,
no accidents to set us back.
foot by foot,
mile by mile,
we cover the distance 
and arrive 
home at last.
