Soft, sandy paths feel good on bare feet, but they are hard to walk on. The sand gives way underfoot, causing all the other muscles to work harder to gain momentum. (good workout though!) Hard packed sand, however, is great to walk on. Rocky paths are difficult, because you need to watch your step carefully so there are no turned ankles on the way.
No matter which type of path you’re walking today, the end of the path is worth it. There are oceans to be seen, seagulls flying overhead, and mountain vistas abounding. Walk the path, and hold tightly to the hand of God, who will give you the strength you need for the path you’re traveling. Slainte, Lisa
