Year 4-Day 60: Today...I am grateful for the humble staircase.
It is a great way to get unintentional exercise.
It is easier than a ladder.
It is safer than a ladder.
Once familiar...can be managed even in the dark.
It can be beautifully carved or simple.
It takes me higher in safety.
If it is open, it can be decorated.
The quote from Martin Luther King, Jr. "Faith is taking the first step, even when you don't see the whole staircase."
The biblical inspiration for that quote would surely be Hebrew 11:1 "Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen."
What tasks this week require a staircase? Which ones require faith that requires stepping out? Which staircase will we choose and use?
Today...I am grateful for the humble staircase...and the beautiful ones, too.
