Flashback: Truth, Chalked on a Stone by the Roanoke River

Yesterday’s post has me thinking about the mercy of near-misses, and the grace of second chances.  I originally published the following words and the accompanying photograph on January 7, 2015, as part of the Secret Messages Project, and it seemed right to share it with you once more.

Wherever you are when you read these words — if you need to press the reset button, please know:  I’m thinking of you, and I’m hoping you do it today…

You can begin again
anytime you choose —
any old day of the week.

But you can read these words
today
or perhaps tomorrow–

until the rain falls
or the river rises…

Which is something to think about. ❤
