The Step of Faith

"Mind how you go",

said the old woman.

And she knew the importance

of this advice.


Each step is a gift,

each stride to be measured and treasured.

Each stumble and slip a peril.


So, be careful:

Be full of care,

and be mindful of how you go.


Notice the now.

Look at the path

as well as the view.

Walk well on the earth

for as long as the path lasts.

And at the end

Take heart, and do not be afraid.

Go well with God.


As the old woman said,

"Always mind how you go."
