On the road of living we have many companions: Joy is the traveler that puts spring in our step; Fear will often cause us to halt, or sometimes to run; Shame will trick us into believing we are alone on the road; Pride will help us only so long before taking us down a dead-end detour; Grief at first seems a forlorn companion, but eventually proves to be forthright and true. Together this cadre of sojourners serve to guide our steps, shape the landscape, and in the fullness of time bring us to our Ultimate Destination, which is not Death, but rather Life. May we bravely venture forth, relish each step, our passports at the ready to be stamped at every border and outpost. We have Pilgrim Souls and for this we are grateful. Blesséd Be, and Amen.
