Title: Destiny’s Simple Message

Shawna sat on her couch flipping through her latest tour guide, another book displaying pictures of places she’d never been. The glacier tours looked breathtaking. After looking outside at her own snow covered lawn, a shiver rippled through her and she tossed the book aside.

She took a sip from her coffee mug and the rich brew warmed her like a hug from her best friend.

A quick flip through the pictures on her phone revealed the shot she couldn’t get out of her mind for the last several months. Who knew a simple walk in the woods could occupy your thoughts so completely. The words scarred into the tree bark were simple and kept driving her to make a change, but for the life of her she had no idea what to do.

She flipped through the books. Maybe one day she’d see the place she was meant to visit, the place that might hold the answers to so many questions.

With a new book in her lap, she skimmed through the pages. A muddy page opened to her with bright blue skies and her heart skipped over a beat as recognition awakened.
