The Bridge Builder

I blog not to become famous...or too brag....but to help others who might be in the same situation...or have the same questions....or who simply can't get enough of the man that is Darren Byrd. On a more serious is a story from my fits.

The Bridge Builder:

An old man, going a lone highway, came at the evening, cold and gray, to a chasm vast and deep and wide; the old man crossed in the twilight dim, the sullen stream had no fear for him; but he turned when safe on the other side and built a bridge to span the tide. "Old man," said a fellow pilgrim near, "you are wasting your strength with building here; your journey will end with the ending day, you never again will pass this way; you've crossed the chasm deep and wide; why build you this bridge at evening tide?" The builder lifted his old gray head- "good friend, in the path I have come," he said, "there followeth after me today, a youth whose feet must pass this way; this chasm that has been naught to me to that fair-haired youth may a pitfall be; he, too, must cross in the twilight dim- good friend, I am building this bridge for him."
