Thoughts - October 4, 2016

"Generally speaking, if you want to know who you really are, as distinct from who you like to think you are, keep an eye on where your feet take you." Frederick Buechner
This is one of those quotes that I often ponder. Sometimes in my mind. Sometimes in my heart. And sometimes with my soul. The feet take me to work, a good and necessary place. And they serve me the same with hikes, church, neighbors, friends. Sometimes, alas, they walk all over our hearts. And, like the 'ol story goes, they leave footprints in the sand, assuring us we don't walk alone. There are times they take us to places where we oughten be and then we wonder how we got there(!) We mutter, "Feet don't fail me now" when we are lost or off the path or went too far in one direction. At times, our feet press a little heavy on the gas pedal and not often enough on the brakes. Think about them today, watch where take you! - Beth Almond Ford
