A Pass Through The Mountains

When I first moved to this small rural area, that I currently live in. I wondered why all the roads had numbers instead of names (route###). Secondly I was curious about the name of my township (zip code). What did the name mean? I remember my dad giving me a map and saying "go find the post office". That was his way of getting me familiar with the roads with no names. And way before us little people had GPSs'. I found the post office. A man was standing there donning the features of most around here( pale, red hair, green eyes). There were many Scottish immigrants that settled here. I asked him about the name of this township and he preceded to tell me that his Gx2 grandfather founded this post office(the only one in these here woods)Wow! Can you imagine Jesus and his disciples walking for long periods of time. Speaking here and there. Their bewilderment sometime, wondering where in the world were they going? And when the question arose, Jesus simply said, I am your pass through the mountain. The mountain of life. Follow me. The Bibles reference is here in John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. Amen
