I've been walking these dykes since I was 10 years old,
and every morning they greet me like a Faithful Friend.
This morning they were beckoning me to 'walk on'.
Even the puddles appeared as stepping stones to me, leading me into the New Day ahead.
I thought about how there is nothing quite like a Word of Encouragement from a Faithful Friend,
to continue on in your walk along The Path of Life.
This little fellow and many of his brothers and sisters continually chirped and swooped around me, joining with me along The Path and reminding me of the simple joy of greeting with delight and thanksgiving another New Day.
It's just a given that along this Path of Life,
there will be moments when our flesh will obscure portions of the Higher View...
yet the Promise Still Remains...
The Son of God,
will be a Lamp to our feet,
and a Light unto our path."
