Foto Friday - Walk this way . . .


A route or track
along which something moves
that is sometimes done by foot.
But always to get from one place to another
that can be taken both physically and spiritually.
Some are found on the side of the road
or through a garden,
and we can even beat one of these to someones door.
At times we will take the one of least resistance
and others the one of war.
There are those that will beg where you are going,
and others that will ask where you have been.
Some have even gone ahead clearing the way,
but don't be fooled by the ones that lead you to no where,
at the end of the day.  
Some of them twist and turn
and while some may take the winding ones,
there are some that stay on the straight and narrow.
Some follow those they cannot see
and they do so by faith alone.
Then there are some that can only be felt
and may lead us straight to the heart of another.
There are times when we will embark on new ones
and in order to move forward we must leave regret behind.
Many times we will be unsure if we have chosen the right one
because they often go unmarked .. .
and sometimes we will just simply change our mind.
But if there is one thing I know to be true,
when we feel we have chosen the wrong one,
when we get lost . . . it's okay,
because I know God allows u-turns,
He is with us every step of the way.

- Kim


[Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path]
Psalm 119:105



{Foto Friday - perspective}

Paths come in different shapes and sizes, some with color...


{Photo Art Friday}


Some that wind . . .



. . . and those where light shines in the darkness.


Some with unexpected visitors . . .



{Shoot, submit, edit}

Some that make you stop and take pause . . .



 . . .  and ones that invite you in.


Some without clear vision ahead, but taken with faith . . .


. . .  and the ultimate path, the one that led to the cross.

{P52-Sacrifice}

In life there are some paths we must walk alone, those we may take together.
And when we choose the right ones they allow us to go the distance.
Wishing you inspiration that will lead you down new paths,
and encouragement to keep you going.

Love, Kim
XO
