After a storm, a thick blanket of damp leaves covers the ground. Until the leaves are raked, you cannot see the walkways. Likewise, aging makes seeing God’s path for your life difficult. When faced with questions such as, Should I stay in my home or move? or Should I move to this place or that place?, trust that God will make your paths known.
—Missy Buchanan, Spirit Boosters for the Journey of Aging: 366 Devotions (Upper Room Books, 2016)
