I was thinking about what to write,
and this word came to me “threshold”.
I realized that this word is very important in our lives.
We cross so many thresholds.
There is the threshold into your home
(whether you live in a house, an apartment, or a trailer).
Every building you enter has a threshold.
You choose which thresholds to cross.
Will you enter and cross the threshold?
Will you go to college?
Will you go to work?
Will you go to church?
The grocery store?
What do you expect when you cross the threshold?
What surprises will be waiting for you?
Will you see someone you know?
Meet someone new?
Learn something new?
Find a really good deal?
When you cross the threshold,
will it be quiet or noisy?
will it be dark or have bright lights?
will it be warm or cold?
will you feel safe or afraid?
will there be lots of people or only a few?
will you be alone?
We miss great experiences and not find anything new,
unless we cross thresholds.
What will be the next threshold you see?
Will you decide to cross it?
The next threshold you cross,
I hope you find what you are looking for.
