Lighting the Way 

Lighting the Way

Last night I was the guest of my beautiful wife to a Christmas light gala hosted by Regions Bank, at Cheekwood Park in Tennessee. The walk around this picturesque landscape was incredible and at the end was warm drinks and cookies for everyone. They had outdoor train sets, an art gallery and carolers singing.  Overall a fantastic time with the Mrs. I am thankful she chose me to be her; “plus one.”

It was dark when we arrived at the park at 5:00pm (thanks daylight savings time! 😦 and the only lights for the path we followed were the Christmas lights. It was easy to know where not to go, don’t journey where it’s dark.

I’ve been thinking about the event last night and walking by light. My biggest reflection is the way isn’t always that easy to find. It’s hard to tell sometimes which way to go, especially in our hustle and bustle world. Rushing and finding the path rarely go hand in hand. 

Last night we walked slowly trying to enjoy every light, each song, the entirety of our visit. I think this is also key to staying on the path that leads us home; to go slowly, mindfully, seeking to live every moment, and trusting when the time is right, the light will lead the way.
