Portas.

". . . knock and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives;  he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. . . Enter through the narrow gate.  For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.  But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”                                                                                                                                 - matthew 7

i was taken with the “portas” in Portugal.  Doors and gates all lead to something, to somewhere.  I often wondered what was beyond the passage.  How do they live?  Is it filled with grandeur?  abandoned?  unkept?  Would they let me in?  I wanted to knock but didn’t. Life has doors.  Have you ever opted for door #1 when you should have went through door #3?  Choices - they all lead us to something, to somewhere.   I have entered places i wish i hadn’t. I have retreated quickly. Knowing that where i was headed was not where i wanted to go.  I have found that through the narrow passage TRUE LIFE is found, not an easy path but eternal grandeur.  Go ahead, KNOCK.  HE, who is faithful & true, WILL answer.
