Where our feet take us

Some time ago, reader Deacon's Wife sent me the link to a blog post entitled "The feet of a grasshopper without a leg". It starts off this way:
One of my favorite authors, Frederick Buechner, once wrote that "if you want to know who you are, if you are more than simply academically interested in this or that mystery, you could do a lot worse than look to your feet for the answer. ... When you wake up in the morning, called by God to be a self again, if you want to know who you are, watch your feet. Because, where your feet take you, that is who you are."
The entire post is quite touching and I recommend that you take a look.

Let's also, shall we, consider looking to our feet.


  1. I like this Ellie, it's simple and yet quite profound. Where do our feet take us? An excellent observation.

  2. Maybe I need to start worrying about who I am.
