Miles To Go

"Miles To Go" by Richard Paul Evans

This is the second book in the Journal of the Walk Series. It continues the journey of Alan who began his walk across the country after his wife dies and he loses everything. But his walk comes to an abrupt stop after he is stabbed. Where will he turn? To an Angel. "I have found that the people who shout their opinion the loudest are usually the ones most insecure in their position." When we know that we are right we don't have to shout. "How do you live when you don't want to live anymore? One day at a time." And one day at a time God will meet you there. "I guess sometimes we are lucky to have someone to miss so much." Yes it hurts to lose someone we love but its even worse to not have loved them at all. "When a man loses his vision of the future he dies. There's a lot of talk these days about living in the now, but if you don't have a future, there is no now." Being thankful for today is important. We aren't guaranteed tomorrow but if we don't look to tomorrow what will we live for? "Worst thing you can give a man is what he wants. The lookin's the thing. When a man gets what he been lookin' for, the road ends, don't it." And usually whatever we are looking for doesn't satisfy.
