The Switch

My son-in-law, Travis, works for the BNSF railroad.  A third generation railroad man, he drives the huge locomotives and knows more about trains and railroad tracks than I do.  He probably could describe this better than me.

As the engineer goes on his journey there are switches along the way.  These switches alter his journey, they put him on a different track.  The engineer is dependent on someone else to do that job, the switchman. 

Although we lead independent lives, our journey depends on others like the switchman.  They help us reach our final destination safely.  I believe that we meet them along the way.  We need to listen to them like shamans and as harbingers of omens.  If you listen and watch, you will stay on track.
