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.
