Do you know where you are going?

Sherm decided to take the long way home after a pleasant drive through neighborhoods he and Weez had never seen. 'Guess it's time to go home for supper.', he said finally.

Weez watched the scenery as her husband drove. After a while she noticed that they had been driving for a long time. All she saw was unfamiliar highway. 'Are we lost?'she said.

Sherm was quiet a bit then replied. 'I must have taken a wrong turn but don't worry.'

Weez looked at the gas gauge going to low. Rather than nag her husband she focused on the pretty houses and trees. The sun was shining through the huge oaks and the palm trees were swaying in the afternoon seabreeze. They weren't far from the ocean.

After Sherm had sighed for six or seven times, Weez asked 'Do you want to stop and get directions?'

'No, I don't need help.'he replied. Weez settled back and said a silent prayer to get them home safe.

A few moments later Sherm spotted something familiar. He pulled to the left and began to drive toward their home. "See, I told you we weren't lost. Only you were lost."

Weez rolled her eyes and said. 'I may not always know where I'm going but at least I know who I'm following. I've been praying that you'd find a landmark to get us home.'

Sherm laughed as he drove. 'Good one Weez'!
