Path of Life
When I am out on the road it is difficult to ignore the invitation to go down a beautiful path like these three. One ended in some swampy bottoms teeming with life. We were all alone in a beautiful garden. Another was in the middle of Maplewood Cemetery. Beautiful also. The third went high up to a hillside covered with deep pink leaves. Each invitation led to a hidden gift from the roads less traveled.
Through each perplexing path of life
our wand'ring footsteps guide;
Give us each day our daily bread,
And raiment fit provide.
from O God of Bethel,
