Today is my birthday, so I spent some time this afternoon taking a walk and reflecting along with my dog Buddy.

Next door to the Avondale Presbyterian Church is a labyrinth path which was an invitation to walk and pray on this lovely October day.

As I began, I thought bank across my life from the day I was born until now, so many years later.

With each step I recalled the various turns and twists and directions of my life. It was a very deep time of remembering and being thankful.

When I got to the very center of the labyrinth, I saw engraved on this stone circle these words from Psalm 105.

“Thy Word is a light to my feet and a lamp to my path.”

As I stood, I breathed a prayer of gratitude to God for His guidance then and now, and in the times yet to come.

(And also wished all those who sent words of birthday greetings today could walk with us!)
