finding the way

Life is a sacred path that twists, turns, grows and reaches new levels as long as you keep moving forward.  Which takes immense courage, perseverance and love.  The destination? Your very own soul.  Christian churches throughout time have used the Labyrinth as a symbol of wholeness and the sacred journey of life.  The one above is at Chartres, but many churches like mine, and maybe yours, will set out a temporary Labyrinth during Holy Week. Representing 'a journey to our own center and back out into the world,' we're encouraged to walk it meditatively, on our own time and at our own pace, to see where it takes us.  This is the mystery of faith.

Matt 7:7-8

Keep on asking, and you will be given what you ask for. Keep on looking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And the door is opened to everyone who knocks.
