A wicked web we weave

As the sun sets on another day I consider the webs we weave, only because as I sat ready to take a picture of the sunset I found a series of intricate webs in the fence where I ended up tonight. It seems each night I am being guided somewhere to give me some type of clarity or to somehow shed some type of light on life. (A bit ominous huh?) 

Consider the web above and the story it tells. Once a strong web held with silk, it has lost purpose and sits in tatters. The work done to create this web was immense, however the end result now slowly fades away like the setting sun.

Like the web we all have some type of baggage in life. Whether it be from our past, our present, or a combination of such. We put a lot of work into building that “baggage” and build an intricate web. It is apparent (At least to me) that sometimes our fear and guilt overwhelm us as we review our web and eliminate our ability to see life clearly.

I have seen people rationalize their unhappiness, with bitter days behind and ahead while happiness looms only a moment away if they would let loose their fear and embrace forgiveness. After all, forgiveness starts with yourself and God, and works forward. In the end, we can be forgiven for almost anything, if we shed our guilt and move on. Sometimes the web we have woven needs to be swept away, and a new web created. (Of course this is just my opinion)

As the sun sets remember tomorrow is a new day with a promise of love and happiness, anything else is may be a waste of time.
