When my wife and I were taking a walk along the Hudson Riverfront Path, about 10-15 minutes from the house, I saw this scene and knew I had to take a picture of it. This image inspired me to think about life and how things can change and lead you down paths of the unknown. Even though my wife and I have been on this path plenty of times before, this was part of the path that we have not experienced together. Walking through this part of the path was beautiful, which the picture may capture for you to sense, but we had no idea where this path would lead us ultimately. You can continue to walk, jog or bike this path and end up in Buffalo, but you may not be happy with your physical results once that endeavor was completed. I can definitely see how this path can resemble your path through life and not knowing where it will lead you. Coming up to New York, on blind faith, with no permanent job in sight and not knowing how things will turn up for us, was somewhat scary, but exciting at the same time. This path also resembles the focus you have to have when going through life and facing obstacles. Keep your focus straight on your goal and continue to follow the path that God has set for you. You may not know where the path will lead you, which we found out this led us to a beautiful opening, but nevertheless continue and you may come across an opening for new challenges and opportunities for you to conquer. I ask you, what does this path mean to you and how does it play a role in your life?
