Taking the Scenic Road

She hopped into the passenger seat
and buckled up because she knew it was going to be a long ride
He didn't lead her through the dark and boring
He wanted to take her on an exciting ride
The ride of her life

She wasn't sure where they were going
or what stops they would take along this trip
Sometimes the sun would kiss her cheeks
Sometimes the rain would fall ever so slightly on the two travelers
Sometims it would pour so hard that all they could see was the bright light before them
Sometimes the fog was so thick they couldn't see the end of the car

The fog scared her the most
Not knowing where they were going
Not knowing what was ahead
Questions upon questions
Clouds upon clouds
The fog enveloped the car
and scared her stiff

But the Driver always know where He is going
He knows every turn, every bump in the road, every turnout
He knows how to maneuver the vehicle through the rain, snow, sleet, hail, fog
He knows exactly where He is taking her
He knows every mile
But He doesn't utter a word because He doesn't want to ruin the surpirse

He wanted to take her on The Scenic Road
Though it's longer, it's more beautiful out there
The sun is brighter, the air crisper, the water breathtaking
All she has to do is sit back, relax, and trust the Driver
He will never get lost; He'll never make mistakes
He's the Driver and He owns the road
Especially this one.

The Scenic Road is always nicer, sometimes takes longer, but always nicer... I was gonna call you to come with us on Wednesday, but forgot, but was gonna call you for Thursday, but forgot... my house is a mess and I dont want to pack and clean...but I am slowly chipping away...

Then finally we stop. I was not sure where we where. There was a sense of excitedment and fear all at once.
I turned to the front to look for the driver
and asked him where we were
With a calm and peaceful voice he said,
This is where I wanted to take you. HE then stepped out and came around to me.
At first I was scared but then recalled the times in the fog, that no matter what happened, I could always trust him.
He let me out and suddenly a great view of a gate came into view. He took my hand and walk with towards the site.

When we got there He said:

It has been a great Scenic Ride. I enjoyed all the views and the places we temporaily stopped at. Even though the the ride was at times scary, so thank you for trusting in me. I just wanted to tell you that this is the place i wanted to take you. I wanted you to see and experience all those places because it would only prepare you for this day. I am very proud of you; you have done a great job throughout our scenic ride. I am very excited for the new adventures we will have together.

i love you cuz...i hope this encourages you as much as what you wrote did for me.
