Have you ever considered that the symbolism of personal paths (that take us back to God’s Home) just doesn’t apply to human ” everyone’s ” but to everything God created?
All we have to do is watch a few nature documentaries and we see that every single creature God placed on this earth has a path to follow but man is the only one who gets to accept or reject their given path.
Saturday, at Winnie’s funeral, Anne and I found a pew together… while waiting for the service to start Anne commented on a necklace I was wearing … the symbol on it looked Celtic and she wondered if Tommy and Kaitlyn had brought it back from Ireland. I told her ” no” but later remembered I got it when we went to Ireland several years ago.
It symbolizes a secret Christian greeting to identify oneself for safety reasons. On the back it reads: Jesus loves me. I either wear it or take it with me to every oncology check-up.
In particular the Irish and Native-American cultures recognize that the path of life is traveled by everyone and everything… on the ground, on the seas and in the oceans and the skies.
The famous Celtic knot is revered in Ireland encircled by three spirals -life, death, and rebirth. When it comes to knowledge and wisdom the spirals tell us to learn names, causes, and their influence…and leave this knowledge behind to help others on their paths.
Native-Americans worshipped the Sun God who brought life to the world everyday…they revered animals and nature. The ” Path of Life” was symbolized by the Hopi tribe called ” The Man of the Maze.” ( It shows a man entering the maze which represents birth and he must follow his Path of Life -filled with happiness, sadness, obstacles and adventures )
If one has ” beautified ” the path you walked and left the world a better place for your existence in it …if your memories of good acts are completed… then the memories act as stepping stones for those who come behind you to follow and the Creator blesses you and brings you into the next world.
So until tomorrow… ” It is every man’s obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what he takes out of it.” Albert Einstein
Unfortunately the deer or a deer found a path to my moon flower trellis and ate the middle of the abundantly-covered moonflower vines and leaves.

Pardon the grandmother BooBoo Bragging Corner but Walsh took Rutledge to Charlotte to play in another Lacrosse competition including a team from Texas this weekend while Mollie held down the fort with Lachlan and Eloise.
The Lowcountry team won every game concluding with the final -the Championship and Rutledge was named MVP of the tournament. So proud of you Rutledge!
