Today's word is turn.
"To Mecca thou turnest, with burning eyes and lips that sweat, Ah, Hajji, where wilt thou turn, when thou art there, when thou art there?" - James Elroy Flecker, The Golden Journey to Samarkand
Ann Landers once wrote that a marriage isn't two people looking at each other, it;s two people looking together, in the same direction.
Presumably, looking into their future.
But what happens when they reach their their future?
It may be the well-established family, it may be the big house in the country, it may be the secure and active retirement.
All too often things fall apart, because they were focused on the destination.
They were looking forward. But in the end, it;s not looking ahead, or behind. It;s not even enjoying the journey.
The direction to turn is up, because marriage - and life - are hard.
And we need help from on high.
I turn my eyes to the hills, whence cometh Thy help.
