A trail worth taking

I had the opportunity last night to hop on the bicycle and experience the "Old Stone Arch Trail" at Shelby, Iowa. We have these hidden treasures just a short distance from where we live. The old railroad bed that once carried the locomotives everyday, today offers a view of the countryside that is not seen from the hyway. I am reminded that not all that is real and beautiful is before our eyes. Some treasures must be sought out by searching. The stone arch reminded me that there are bridges worth crossing. This week we celebrate the greatest bridge man has ever crossed. The "Crimson Bridge" of the cross of Christ is the only path that leads from death to life. It is a trail worth taking.
