Life sometimes feels like its full of fog.

This morning is one of those scenic mornings for a classic picture of New England. As I gaze out my window I see familiar homes surrounded by trees with various small animals scurrying about. The difference between today and any other day is the presence of a thick layer of fog that lies over all of my familiar places.

Iím always amazed at how something as simple as fog can completely change my view. At times it can appear treacherous while at others it can turn a normal scene into a place of beauty. Today beauty rules and what Iím seeing takes my breath away.

How can something as simple as fog cause my world to change? Itís like looking at a Photoshop picture realizing I am looking through multiple layers of pigment that together make up a whole. One difference is that these layers are constantly changing. One second I see a billowing wall of fog approaching while the next my view is like looking through some milky glass. Curious.

I look now and the fog has dissipated no longer coloring my view with its opalescent sheen. Where did it go while a moment ago it brought awe into my world. Mystery upon mystery, wonder upon the wonder, moment to moment, the world I depend on changes before my eyes. What once gave me security now presents insecurity to my eye.

There are many days in my life when I feel like a wall of fog has overcome me. Nothing seems the same at first glance but as I continue to gaze my field of vision clarifies and I begin to see what is before me. I take a second look at what I saw and I feel the relief that familiarity brings.

It is being able to see through the fog that makes itís mystery disappear. I become aware of details I could not see before. Is it as if a new world has opened before my eyes. Sometimes what I see will startle me while at other times I will find comfort and solace. Strange how that is.

One moment I see things one way and then the next an entire new world seems to unfold. Life is like that at times and presents me with the same dilemma. One moment what seems so clear fades from view. Another moment another view. Why canít life be clear as glass instead of foggy and full of mystery?

At times my life seems that same way. One moment I see one thing - the next it changes. One moment I canít quite make out my way like fog has covered my view. But the next moment what I perceived as fog lifts and beauty surrounds me again.

When I feel a thick fog surround me I simply pause because I know it will pass. When I canít see my way I ask for help and pray for clarity. Answers always come and prayers are always answered. It continually amazes me how fog lifts as fast is it covers my view. It is knowing this that allows me to pass through these moments in peace.

Always remember that any thickness or blanket of fog will dissipate in time and what seemed impossible to see or understand will become clear and your pathway will become unobstructed. Understanding this is a true miracle. It is a miracle that will allow expansion of your world and move you farther along your lifeís path.
