Photo Prayer 2021-05 -- Footprints In The Snow

A friend and I once trailed a thief, following his footprints in the snow as he visited one driveway after another, trying the doors of the parked cars, searching for unlocked valuables. Finally he found an unlocked van and, in it, keys. There his footprints ended. This is the world we live in. People without keys are trying the doors, hoping to find some unlocked. Knock, we are told, and it shall be opened; everyone who asks, receives; seek, and you shall find. Let us who have been welcomed, welcome others. We who have been answered, answer others. We who have found, leave clues.

Didn’t know you were a sleuth too! Love this pic and call to “leave clues.” Love you Danny for the sharing of your wisdom in a thought provoking visual way.

Thanks for another Photo prayer. When I first moved to Arden with three other bachelors, we never locked our doors. And never had any intrusions, other than the squirrels. Now that my wife and I are in a retirement community, we don't lock our doors, I don't worry about our neighbors in wheel chairs robbing our little apartment. Getting older has some nice tradeoffs.
