Alternate Routes II

On my way home from the stake baptism last night, I pulled up to the stop light behind a car with a bumper sticker; "Don't follow me. You won't get there." I laughed to myself because I live with people like that. But then I saw a hand posted sign on a telephone pole right by that car which read, "Jesus is the WAY, the truth, the life." There are alternate routes and direct routes. And when we take alternate routes, we can still get there - somehow!

As one who has taken an unplanned alternate route, I am humbled by the beauty of the atonement and the peace that comes from aligning our lives with our Heavenly Father's plan. It is true: we can return to our God through Christ no matter how far off track we've gone.
