♪ Row, row, row your boat,
Gently down the stream, ♪
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream… ♪
Remember, it’s never said to row your boat against the current, to rush, or to struggle as you paddle up stream, fighting your way up, or that it’s a race and you must get there first…
We’re to row our boat “gently down the stream” along the current, the path of least resistance. We’re to gently and merrily guide our boat on our own path, in the stream of ‘our’ choosing, enjoying the journey as we go.
Yes, there will be obstacles along the way – large rocks or boulders that threaten the comfort of our ride, the weather changing from time to time, going from sunny and pleasant to pouring down rain or even stormy – and yet, we’re to keep traveling gently and merrily along the current knowing that we will pass through those tough spots and continue on our most beautiful journey… Our beautiful journey of life… Rowing gently and merrily along…
I’m wishing each of you the most beautiful day today. Enjoy the journey. Take time out today to look around you and admire the beauty that is in this magnificent world.
