A SHORT CUT

This morning on my walk around the Gettysburg Battlefield, I wasn’t looking for 4 leaf clovers. I just wanted to walk and get some exercise. Usually, I only find one on my walk anyway and on one occasion I found three. Well, as you can see from the above picture, I found (21) 4-leaf clovers and (7) – 5 leaf clovers on a path I have NEVER walked before. Let me repeat that…”ON A PATH I HAVE NEVER WALKED BEFORE!” This path, is normally a horse path. I usually just walk on the pavement around the battlefield and some grass paths. This particular morning, it was misting – not raining. But, we had already walked an hour and just wanted to take a short cut to get to McDonald’s to get some breakfast.

KLINGLE FARM – GETTYSBURG, PA

This is the dirt path we took. It starts in front of the Trostle Farm and swings around and passes behind the Klingle Farm. As we were walking, I looked down and (1) four leaf lclover jumped out at me. So, I stopped to pick it up and lo and behold, I saw some more. But the ones I picked, were hiding others and some of those were 5 leaf clovers. I was esctactic. I knew this was not just an oridinary haul. This was God speaking to me. Many people think of 4-leaf clovers as “luck.” I think of them as “God’s grace” and His provision, timing and favor. I have spent many years on this battlefield walking and like I have posted many times before, I usually only find (1). A few weeks ago, I posted that I found (3) while going through a very hard situtation, wondering if I should continue on with what I have been doing.

Then today…I have to ponder all that happened.

1). I took a short cut on a path I have never taken before.  

2). Without even looking, I found more of something in abundance.

I have been so against “short cuts” when it comes to this film production, even the mention of the word “short cut” sent me into a frenzy – ask Ed – he will tell you! Yet, now I have to wonder. What paths have I not yet taken that I need to take?  Because that is where the abundance is; that is where God’s provision is and that is where He wants me to walk.

GOS PLEASE OPEN MY EYES TO YOUR PATH! IF IT’S A SHORT CUT, I WILL WALK THERE AND FIND GREAT ABUNDANCE FOR OUR PRODUCTION.
